Nine students from the PAX 89 class  “Internship in Peace, Conflict, and Coexistence Studies,” taught by Mitra Shavarini, gave readings and debuted a publication chronicling their internship experiences, in a presentation today in the Rapaporte Treasure Hall, Goldfarb Library.

Outside Rapaporte Treasure Hall, the students presented an exhibit in the form of a map displaying information about their experiences.

The students – six Ethics Center Student Fellows and three who received other awards – read from “Contrasts & Connection: Nine Students Reflect on their Worldwide Internships,” which includes essays about their experiences. They are:
