Terry L. Koenig, PhD, LSCSW has received a KU Digital Humanities fellowship

Her project involves a seven-year partnership with Cometa, an agency in Como, Italy that is increasingly providing vocational training to African refugees and has received European Union acknowledgement for its network of welcoming agencies and business partners who provide employment-based internships. In 2019 and before the emergence of the pandemic, Dr. Koenig and her team conducted semi-structured interviews and captured photographic images of African refugees, their work settings and the staff that work with them. Her digital project involves developing a website and interactive maps that integrate refugees' geographic and emotional journeys with staff voices and images.
