Perils of Privatization in NOLA

Jared Richardson and Dr. Justin Hosbey (Dept. Anthropology, Emory) grapple with neoliberalism’s effects on Black communities within New Orleans. As a cultural anthropologist, Dr. Hosbey discusses how he uses the charter-school system as a new and unsuspecting lens through which to examine the connection between privatized education and ecological catastrophes produced by Hurricane Katrina and petrochemical companies. In addition to critiquing different forms of labor, Dr. Hosbey also reveals his scholarly influences.
