Bed ki Gen and other publications
In 2009, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee’s College Scholars Program, where I concentrated in Peace Studies, Anthropology, and African Studies. During that time, I had the privilege of studying under the mentorship of Drs. Rosalind I. J. Hackett (Religious Studies) and Tricia Redeker-Hepner (Anthropology), two professors whom I continue to work closely with, especially through UT’s Gulu Study and Service Abroad Program (GSSAP).
As a major component of my program, I conducted field research in Uganda from 2007-2009, and a defended a two-part project on the arts and peacebuilding, including a creative piece,Bed ki Gen: Northern Uganda’s Creative Approaches to Peace and Healing, and an academic thesis, The Art of Creative Conflict Resolution: A Critical Evaluation of Approaches to Post-Conflict Reconstruction in Northern Uganda, which was later published in Pursuit, an academic journal at UT.
