Teaching Assistant Professor of Arabic Bud Kauffman is teaching a new Languages Across the Curriculum (LAC) course entitled “The Language of Refugeeism”. Throughout the semester, students have studied and discussed various aspects of the refugee experience through the lens of historical perspectives and contemporary media resources. The materials introduce topics including historical refugee incidents, causes and effects of the current refugee crisis, and challenges that refugees face related to physical and psychological trauma, educational and professional opportunities, and the politics of refugee resettlement.
