The Continuing Project



The Evergreen State College in Spring quarter of 2006 formed a unique learning community for the program Reconstructing New Orleans: Class, Race, and the Ownership Society. 

The participants looked at the history of New Orleans, the impacts of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, Neoliberalism, and the various plans for reconstruction from the government, corporations and importantly, the people of New Orleans themselves and their needs.  The work and research culminated in a college-wide Symposium for public benefit.  This website contains research, links, and projects from the participants and others who contributed.
