Podcast Examines Haiti Earthquake and How Emancipation Affected Iowa
In the March 2010 edition of "Iowa Insights" podcast, Ann Campbell, associate professor of management sciences, discusses the transportation logistics needed to bring relief supplies to Haiti and to rebuild the country's infrastructure.
Also in this edition, international programs professor Maureen McCue discusses a class she is teaching that will visit Haiti at the end of the semester and provide earthquake relief. And history professor Leslie Schwalm talks about her new book, Emancipation's Diaspora, and explains how the end of slavery in the South changed Iowa and the Midwest.
