Humanities Lab project archive: On the trail of cholera in Haiti

The Haiti Lab cholera project was launched shortly after cholera appeared in Haiti in October of 2010.  It resulted in a November 2011 article in the CDC journal Emerging Infectious Diseases (link to journal website) and a digital map by Lab Co-Director Deborah Jenson, Affiliated Faculty Victoria Szabo, and the Haiti Lab Student Research Team.* The article and accompanying map explore historical outbreaks of cholera in the Caribbean in order to lend insight into the current spread of the disease in Haiti, where cholera has not existed previously.

* Members of the Haiti Lab Student Research consisted of students in the Lab’s Fall 2010 Tutorial: Alfredo Rivera, Dhrusti Patel, Alston Neville, Edward Jernigan (UNC), James Ivker, Matthew Hoyle, Janani Arangan, Erin Cloninger, and Sedlin Mirtil.
