Narrative

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology and an Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellow with the Human Rights Program. I am currently working on my dissertation about how communities rebuild after violent conflict and widespread human rights abuses. I'm interested in processes of reconciliation, building collective identity, and constructing social solidarity.
