Call for Papers for International Research Symposium on The Global Katrina Effect

from IAEM

August 2015 will mark the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, considered to be one of the defining historic events within the emergency management field in the United States. Accordingly, this anniversary will prompt numerous reflective academic assessments of how this disaster, which struck the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coasts, changed the U.S. emergency management landscape thereafter. Less known, however, is the impact that Hurricane Katrina had on disaster management systems in other countries — over a variety of subject areas ranging from emergency preparedness to coastal management to vulnerable populations to companion animals. To highlight the global lessons drawn from Hurricane Katrina, Millersville University will host an international research symposium on Oct. 1-3, 2014 that will bring together policymakers, practitioners and academics from around the world. Academic specialists, practitioners and policymakers are invited to submit proposals addressing the symposium theme. The symposium's organizers intend to invite selected symposium papers for inclusion in an edited volume entitled: The Global Katrina Effect, 2005-2015: Hurricane Katrina's Impact on Disaster Management Systems Worldwide. The deadline for submission of symposium proposals is May 1, 2014. Learn more. more
