One Summer in Damak exhibit travels to Greensboro
A photography exhibit assembled by the 2011 Nepal student research team will be on view at UNCG’s Center for New North Carolinians beginning March 30. “One Summer in Damak” is comprised of student photographs taken during their summer spent undertaking research and community engagement in Nepal, and was previously on display in the West Duke Building. Some of the photographs from the exhibit were also incorporated into a narrated video.
The project is part of the Kenan Institute for Ethics’s Refugee Resettlement Project, which sent undergraduate and graduate students to Nepal for six weeks during the summers of 2010 and 2011 to collect individual narratives and document life in refugee camps. In the spring of 2012 and in the past month, teams of undergraduates in KIE’s DukeImmerse program returned to the Nepali camps for additional research. For insights into the students’ time abroad, visit the research journal blogs of the 2011 Nepal team and the 2013 DukeImmerse students.
