Hurricane Sandy and Visual Sociology

Nickie Phillips

Demetra Pappas offered her students an opportunity to create a visual sociology assignment in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Valia Haskopoulos and Kelsey Papanicolaou document their friend's personal loss on "The Sociology Assignment:  When Visual Images of Hurricane Sandy Got Personal."

Note from Dr. Demetra Pappas: In late-October 2012, I was preparing to give a midterm essay to my Sociology class. Then Hurricane Sandy hit and I decided to provide an out-of-class exercise option for my students.  This visual sociology exercise allowed students to capture something that touched them personally about the storm. One by Valia Haskopoulos and Kelsey Papanicolaou told the story of their friend, Leah Vanden Bosch, whose home in Long Beach was destroyed.
