The boom in Pennsylvania shale drilling has been one of the most controversial and financially lucrative issues in the state’s public debate.  As GSPIA assistant professor Ilia Murtazashvili has pointed out, “The shale boom has been accompanied by many studies of the environmental and ecological consequences of hydraulic fracturing. Much less is known about governance of the shale boom, in particular the different ways that communities have responded to opportunities and challenges presented by the changing environment of shale extraction.”  In order to fill this gap, Murtazashvili and associate professor Sabina Deitrick took advantage of the Provost’s Year of Sustainability funding to host a workshop in May with the University of Pittsburgh’s University Center for Social and Urban Research to discuss the regional impact of shale gas drilling on governance and the economy.

Not long ago, incoming graduate student Hanifa Nakiryow was gainfully employed until her ex-husband went to extreme measures.  Corrosive acid was thrown on her face outside of their home. Shortly thereafter, Nakiryowa found herself recovering in a Uganda hospital and later was treated in the U.K. and the U.S. Upon recovery, Nakiryow decided to found the Centre for Rehabilitation of Survivors of Acid and Burns Violence and continue her education.

Nakiryow’s story became more widely known, after her host family GSPIA Professor Lou Picard, and his wife, Professor Pauline Greenlick of Mt. Lebanon, created a documentary featuring Nakiryow’s plight. Nakiryow’s story has touch many. She will attend graduate school this fall on a full scholarship she received from GSPIA.

Professors Picard, and Greenlick, are hosting a fundraiser for Nakiryow at 4 – 7:30 pm, Sunday, June 21at Rodef Shalom Congregation in Oakland.
