Team Human Rights
I enjoyed watching the Olympics, and seeing the solidarity and spirit of “Team Canada”, “Team USA” and other countries. One Olympic commercial noted the number of people behind every athlete: family members, coaches, sponsors, teachers, friends, and their home town. It seems many things that are worth doing require a dedicated team. My Fulbright project is the same. I am working on transcribing 100+ hours of oral history interviews, building a database of these interviews and turning this oral history into a book about one of Egypt’s leading human rights organizations. I am very fortunate to have 52 interns (some from last fall and many more this semester) helping with this project. It is our own “Team Human Rights”.
