Post  Admin on Mon Feb 27, 2012 2:01 pm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Baltimore, MD: Sponsored by the Coppin State University Anthropology Program in the Department of Social Sciences, Professor Mark Schuller, author of the newly released publication Tectonic Shifts, will engage in a discussion about his research fieldwork in Haiti – during and after the earthquake and the current situation the people of Haiti face today. This is a free, public event that will take place on March 28th at 6:00pm through 8:00pm on CSU's campus: Health and Human Services Building - Room 103.

About the Book:
Published by Kumarian Press, Tectonic Shifts presents a diverse set of voices: perspectives ranging from on-the-ground activists to journalists to academics—from Haiti itself and from the disaspora. These voices expose Haiti’s heightened vulnerability—the result of mismanagement by officials and the recent changes in economic policies—and address the range of contemporary realities, foreign impositions, and the struggles that the people of Haiti face today.

The book released early January to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the earthquake. It has received both national and international attention by the Embassy of Haiti, the Journal of Haitian Studies and TransAfrica. The book retails for $24.95, and is available for purchase through Kumarian Press, or on-site at the event.
