Crafting Carnival, Crafting Community: The New Mardi Gras in New Orleans

Martha Radice discusses how, in post-Katrina New Orleans, "a new wave of carnival parading clubs or ‘krewes’ has emerged, taking a handmade aesthetic and progressive politics to the streets. As krewe members spend hundreds of hours and dollars making material things for their parade—costumes, throws, and floats—they are also making intangible things, like belonging." Held in room 406.
