Daina Cheyenne Harvey earned a B.B.A (Finance) and a B.A. (Philosophy and Economics) from the University of Texas-Austin and a M.A. (Sociology) from the University of Houston. He received his Ph.D. in Sociology from Rutgers University in 2013. Since 2012 he has been a member of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and by courtesy, Environmental Studies, at the College of the Holy Cross. Professor Harvey is currently writing a book tentatively titled Life in the Ninth: Living With Ecological Violence which explores the cultural and cognitive response to Hurricane Katrina and how people cope with living in what he calls a geography of trouble. His work pays particular attention to: 1) the urban and environmental conditions that result in both acute and chronic suffering; 2) violences as a tool of disruption and marginality in the aftermath of disaster; 3) eco-disparities in everyday life; and, 4) the use of culture and cognition to make sense of social disruption. Professor Harvey teaches statistics, environmental sociology, urban sociology, and courses on social disruption and culture.
