Twelve students from KIE’s DukeImmerse program “Uprooted/Rerouted” recited personal narratives of refugees collected during their field work in refugee camps in Egypt and Nepal earlier in the semester. The narratives revealed themes of hopefulness, despair, isolation, the strength of family, and more.
Video of the entire event, with an introduction, overviews of life for refugees in the two countries, and closing thoughts may be viewed in addition to each individual recitation on the KIE Youtube channel.
Stay tuned for an interactive site housing the videos and results of the students’ research later this summer.
