      On April 20, 2010, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon set off the largest marine oil spill in history. In the months that followed, industry professionals scrambled to stop the spill while lawyers worked to uncover the causes of this disaster. In spite of extensive media coverage, many of the spill’s lasting human and environmental costs went unreported.

      Crafted from interviews with those most intimately affected, Leigh Fondakowski’s SPILL paints a striking portrait of communities indelibly altered by this disaster. Returning to this story nearly a decade after it began allows us to
      examine the powerful forces that not only caused the spill, but that also continue to shape how stories about environmental disasters and climate change are told.

      Co-sponsored by the Cornell Council for the Arts; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Studies; Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; Women's Resource Center; Society for the Humanities; Department of English; Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering; and Engaged Cornell.
