    Elena Habersky ’13, Dallas, was awarded a fellowship grant through the American University in Cairo and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to conduct ethnographic research in Uganda during March 2019. Habersky’s project examines how African refugee populations, namely Congolese and Darfuri communities, assemble, become, and escape in urban settings from Amman to Cairo to Kampala. Her research hopes to show how migration within the Global South changes the humanitarian governments and societies in which these refuges reside. During her month in Uganda, she was able to connect with Father Henry Mulindwa ’07, a local Diocesan priest and Scranton alumnus whom she met in January 2013 on the Christianity in Africa travel course.
