    Six months after an earthquake devastated Haiti, Karen Pavelka, conservator and lecturer in the School of Information, spent 10 days in Port-au-Prince helping document and conserve the country’s archives. Pavelka sat down for an interview with KUT’s Erika Aguilar prior to her departure to Haiti.
