  • Humanities Forum Fellows, Chloe Noyorei-Corbett & David Moxley, Outcast and Outlands, 2016- 2017

    With over 270,000 of the stateless Muslim minority, the Rohingya, fleeing renewed violence in Myanmar in recent weeks, the work of OU Social Work faculty Chie Noyori-Corbett and David Moxley (Forum Fellows for the “Outcasts & Outlands” theme of 2016-2017) has never been more relevant. This film explains their project on Rohingya women refugees from Myanmar who are residing in the Vickery Meadow resettlement community in Dallas, Texas: https://youtu.be/OryWkVOCiZU. Chie and David’s important project has helped bring about a member-responsive resettlement support system in which the refugees and their families create art projects, articulate their values for mentoring and support in the US, and explain what’s needed for a new community center. Chie, who was awarded the Anne & Henry Zarrow School of Social Work’s Faculty of the Year award for 2017, is also a recent recipient of a Department of State “Diplomacy Lab” grant for her work on this project. And we wish David well as he commences his directorship of the School of Social Work at the University of Alaska Anchorage!
