Uprooted/ Rerouted Magazine

DukeImmerse: Uprooted/Rerouted was a program run by the Kenan Institute for Ethics in collaboration with the Office of Undergraduate Education. Over a semester, a select group of undergraduates would learn the ethics of field research and engage with a set of courses examining refugee issues from different disciplines. The program also included a month of field work mid-semester with international refugee populations. The students produced essays from their field research which have been published in various formats.

In 2012, a magazine was published compiling students’ essays and information on the Iraqi and Bhutanese refugee populations.

For the 2013 program, a new web resource was created housing videos and transcripts of monologue recitations adapted from refugee life stories in addition to students’ essays and background information.

Another magazine was created for the 2014 program, including new work with Syrian refugees as well as Iraqi refugees in Jordanian camps.
