Drs. Noyori-Corbett and Moxley were selected as Humanities Fellows for the center's 2016-2017 theme "Outcasts and Outlands” and were awarded a grant to benefit their project called “From the Margins to the Mainstream: Myanmar Women’s Use of Art and Narrative to Portray Their Hopes for Successful Resettlement in a Southern American City.” This was the latest of several grants earmarked for the Myanmar Women Refugees project. Dr. Noyori-Corbett received the Junior Faculty Fellowship from the Office of Vice President for Research for two consecutive years as well as a community grant in Dallas area.
Their research strategy has focused on using original data they collected directly from the populations to whom they try to bring justice, in this case, refugee women from Myanmar. Most particularly, the strategy of performing community-based participatory action research (CBPAR) within the framework of social research and development has been the core success factor of their research activities regarding empowering participants through the research process.
