“Hurricane Katrina at 20: Rethinking the Literary and Cultural Legacies of the Storm”
Guest Editors, Courtney George and Judith Livingston (Columbus State University)

Almost immediately, journalists, artists, and scholars began producing significant work about Katrina—work that has continued, especially as we begin to view the disaster and its circumstances in the context of our current social justice and climate-related struggles.
