General Catalog:

Examination of emerging human rights issues from an interdisciplinary and international perspective.

Description:

The refugee experience in the Midwest is as diverse and individual as the members represented in that community. In Iowa City alone, there are many minority groups that include refugees from all over the world, and they all have unique and significant stories.

The 2013 Provost’s Global Forum, hosted by the UI Center for Human Rights, “Refugees in the Heartland” will take place on April 4-7 and will include a variety of events, forums, and cultural activities. Students will be required to attend and report on a specific number of these events. In addition, students enrolled in the course will have the opportunity to participate in a special writing and story-telling workshop hosted by celebrated author Kalia Yang, author of The Late Homecomer.  This course will be of particular interest to students in the creative writing (graduate and undergraduate) program, the journalism program, social work, and sociology, but will be open to students from any discipline or department.
