Five Years After Hurricane Katrina: What “Recovery” Looks Like for Survivors Presented by

Dr. Mary C. Waters

The Catherine McLaughlin Hakim Lecture Series

This annual lecture series was established by Dr. Raymond Hakim in honor of his late wife, Catherine McLaughlin Hakim ’70. A sociology major at Emmanuel, Catherine studied under longtime sociology professor Sister Marie Augusta Neal, SND, who left an indelible mark on her student experience. The lecture series commemorates Catherine’s life, her fondness for Emmanuel, and the relationships she formed at the College and continued to maintain throughout her life. The Catherine McLaughlin Hakim Lecture Series is sponsored by the Department of Sociology. Lectures focus on issues of sociology, social justice and public policy on the local, national and international levels.
