Perspectives from the Inside-Out

I wanted to share this video here on my blog, offering a short glimpse into my experience in a class called “Citizenship and Religion in America,” taken with 12 Bowdoin students and 12 inmates at the Maine Correctional Center last spring. I’ll reiterate our group’s resounding message that we hope this video captures the common humanity within the walls of these institutions, and suggests what it could look like to be a part of a larger human community.

On the Train

This is a visual update from Sri Lanka, riding the train from Colombo to Kandy en route to the village of Ekiriya, where I have been living, farming, and doing research for the past few months now. I look forward to painting a more substantive picture of this unique chapter of my life soon.
