The Burdens of Borders: Understanding International Students' Challenges through Oral History Narratives

Thursday, November 4, 2021 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Add to calendar

Join the International Education Week Celebration! This talk is based on Dr. Jayasinghe’s oral history project “In Transit: An Oral History Project on Crossing Borders”, which won the 2021 Susan W. Schofield Oral History Award for Excellence in the Practice of Oral History awarded by the Stanford Historical Society.


The talk focuses on how being on a visa impinges on the rights, dignities, and general well-being of international students, and how, based on student reflections and suggestions, universities can better support international students.
This program is organized in conjunction with the University of Rochester HumanitiesCenter, the site of a 2021-22 Sawyer Seminar "Unbordering Migration in the Americas" funded by the Andre W. Mellon Foundation.
