On Friday, November 9, a group of Kenan Institute for Ethics students began a new project at Durham’s Jordan High School. The team of undergraduates is presenting refugee monologues originally culled by students during last year’s DukeImmerse: Uprooted/Rerouted program. The monologues reflect personal stories of forced migration by Bhutanese refugees living in Nepal and Iraqi refugees living in Egypt, which were originally performed last spring.
Lead by Virginia Dillon and Kate Abendroth, the team consists of students enrolled in the FOCUS course “The Limits of Obligation? World Refugee Policy and International Law,” Eliza Meredith, Jojo Ramseyer, Natasha Sakraney, and Mousa Alshanteer. A series of readings will occur throughout the 2012-2013 school year, reaching every freshman student at Jordan High School.
