Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship, 2017-2018: Los Niños de Morelia: A Review of 80 Years in Exile

  • As a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow, I traveled throughout Mexico collecting the stories of Los Niños de Morelia, a group of child refugees who fled the Spanish Civil War and settled in Mexico in 1937. My grandmother was among this group of children, and it is her personal experience of flight, exile, and assimilation that has motivated me to learn more about the lives of child refugees -- historically and in the present.

The Transformation of This World Depends on You, by Martha Saxton, Fazal Sheikh, Wendy Ewald and Thomas Keenan, published in 2014 by Steidl

  • The Transformation of This World Depends on You focuses on two related stories: the missionary vision of Amherst College in its early days and the legacy of that vision in the present. I coordinated interviews, conducted archival research, managed digital acquisitions, and wrote contextual passages for the project.
