Event Description

On Saturday, August 12, researchers from UL Lafayette Department of History will be hosting a “History Harvest” at the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market at the Horse Farm to collect oral history stories of community responses to the 2016 Floods at the 1-year anniversary. It is for a larger study on disaster response at the community level. We are looking for your memories of: • where you were and how you were impacted by the 2016 Floods, • how you personally responded or helped others after they took place, • what sort of impact they had on the Lafayette and Acadiana community, • and, how they compared to other disasters in Lafayette or Acadiana history. The oral history interview will take 5 minutes and will help provide valuable information on disaster response in Louisiana. If possible please bring a personal photo (digital or print) of the flood to share. Equipment will be on hand to make copies.
