'Arrivals' Series on NOLA Newcomers Kicks off with La. Purchase
For centuries, hordes of people have flocked to New Orleans, helping shape the cultural landscape of the city. As local geographer-historian Richard Campanella has pointed out, each wave of out-of-towners brings with them new architectural, socioeconomic, and political influences.
Now, as we experience yet another resurgence of transplants, the Louisiana Humanities Center encourages residents to look back on this history in their three-part series of panel discussions, Arrivals.
“The overall goal is to add a historical context to the changing landscape,” said Brian Boyles, Director of Public Relations and Programming at LHC. “[It’s a conversation] that could shed some light on other occasions when large influxes came to the city.”
With movie crews posted up in front of Audubon Park and transplants driving up prices in the Marigny, many natives have their own opinion about the city’s post-Katrina popularity. Rather than alter perspectives, the panel series aims to set a precedent for this type of change.
“What we face today is we have a unique culture that the outside is going to trample on,” said Boyles. “Those are the kind of sentiments that were going on then too.”
Tonight, Dr. Raphael Cassimere of the University of New Orleans, Dr. Emily Clark of Tulane University and Dr. Larry Powell, author of The Accidental City, will tackle the issue of new residents from the colonial period through the Louisiana Purchase.
“In that period we see four or five big influxes,” said Boyles.
From the first French settlers to the African slave trade to the Spanish takeover and even to the Haitian Revolution, New Orleans was a city shaped by its outsiders.
“We’re looking for folks to come and ask questions and get more of a perspective on the city,” said Boyles.
Continuing the series, author Richard Campanella, Dr. Laura Kelly of Tulane and others will address post-Civil War New Orleans through the turn of the century on October 30. The panel series will culminate on November 13 with a look at the post-Katrina world with Allison Plyer, Executive Director of the Greater New Orleans Data Center, Rafael Delgadillo and others.
Panel discussions begin at 6 p.m. at the Louisiana Humanities Center (938 Lafayette Street).
