Liz Koslov is a PhD candidate in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University. Her research interests include housing and relocation, urban redevelopment, and the sociology of climate change. She is currently working on her dissertation, an ethnography of the home buyout process on Staten Island after Hurricane Sandy. As a research assistant with Rebuild By Design, Liz is helping to develop a survey that will track the long-term social, economic, and health outcomes of post-Sandy relocation and rebuilding in New York and New Jersey. Liz is also a member of the Superstorm Research Lab and the Cities, Culture, and Climate Change working group at NYU's Institute for Public Knowledge. Before coming to NYU, Liz received an MSc in Culture and Society from the Department of Sociology at the London School of Economics and a BA in Communication and Spanish and Latin American Literature from the George Washington University. In her free time, she enjoys cheering on the Mets, reading crime fiction, and searching for Staten Island's best pizza.
Urban Omnibus » Leaving the Sea: Staten Islanders Experiment with Managed Retreat
"This type of community organization is remarkable and profoundly important," says Liz Koslov, a Ph.D candidate in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University studying managed retreat from the coast.
"Compare what happened on Staten Island with what happened after Hurricane Katrina, and what became known as the infamous 'green dot' map. Published on the front page of The Times-Picayune, the map showed residential areas that government officials proposed to turn back into open space. Residents were furious, and rightly so: no one consulted them. "This map was perceived as showing how more powerful 'others' were trying to dictate where people should and should not live," Koslov says. "We were really surprised with what happened after Sandy out on Staten Island," says Koslov of NYU.
News & Events - Richmond University
Study Abroad student Elizabeth Koslov has been nominated by Student Affairs and the Internship Office, and accepted into the British Council Student Ambassador program for the 2007-2008 academic year
Elizabeth will be representing the British Council and UK Study Abroad at George Washington University in the United States as an official member of this elite group of students. This is a very prestigious honour for both Elizabeth and Richmond University, as applicants will serve as a point person for anyone interested in studying in the UK from their home university. British Council Student Ambassadors are US students who have recently returned from studying abroad on a summer, semester or year-long program at a British university. They work with their US University's Study Abroad Office to increase awareness of the educational opportunities in the UK by organizing student events and presentations on their college campus. Elizabeth will liaise with George Washington University and volunteer in the study abroad office, help out at study abroad fairs, answer questions from students and organize her own events. She will also be on the British Council webpage, and act as a contact for anyone who would like to ask questions about studying in the UK! Elizabeth studied at Richmond University in the summers of 2005 and 2006, and will return to work in London with BUNAC in the summer of 2007. Elizabeth is originally from Ithaca, New York. She is majoring in Communication Studies and Spanish Literature, and is currently studying abroad in Madrid, Spain. She hopes to return to the UK next year to pursue a graduate degree in Cultural Studies. Elizabeth first came to London looking forward to living and learning in an exciting international city, and has grown to love the unique culture, history and diversity of the UK. She is thrilled to have an opportunity as a British Council Student Ambassador to introduce other students to the unrivalled excitement and lifelong benefits of studying in the UK.
