Traveling with PROOF: Kahn Teaches Workshop at Clark

Kahn Teaches Workshop at Clark University

From September 19 to 21, PROOF Executive Director Leora Kahn taught a three-day workshop at Clark University on taking refugee testimonies and constructing narratives.

The hands-on workshop brought together academics and field practitioners who work with refugees and other displaced people to develop skills in taking testimonies from the displaced and building effective narratives from them.

Participants benefited from a productive knowledge exchange in a multidisciplinary environment. They felt the experience helped them better understand how refugees’ narratives can play a role in exposing their plight.

Leora led the workshop with Dr. Anita Fobos, an anthropologist who has conducted research and outreach among refugees and other forced migrants in urban settings in the Middle East.
