NWU Rwanda study abroad presentation TH 22 Sept, noon, Callen with food from MENA Hope

Students and faculty (several from Gender Studies) who spent the month of June in Rwanda will share what they learned about how Rwandans are rebuilding their lives and country following genocide: healing “ethnic” divisions, preserving memorials, supporting reconciliation villages, hearing testimonials of genocide survivors and perpetrators, women prisoners, internships with artists, children, HIV-positive survivors, the artificial construction of ethnic divisions. We will also reflect on what we learned about ourselves as women and as minorities in the context of Rwanda. 

Heartfelt thanks to the Action Council on Diversity and Inclusion, especially to the Wolf Fund for Diversity Education, for making this program possible.
