Megan Myers: Border of Lights

2017 Research Grant

Megan Myers, assistant professor of Spanish & U.S. Latino/a Studies used her CEAH Research Grant to support an anthology she is co-editing that reflects on the Border of Lights organization and its mission. This event took place in October in Dajabón, Dominican Republic and Ouanaminthe, Haiti.

Myers and group  Myers panel

Myers works with community partners from Centro Montalvo, a non-profit based in Dajabón, Dominican Republic and others on a panel in Ouanamithe, Haiti. She recorded this panel to later transcribe and translate to include in her anthology project.

Myers served on a panel in Dajabón, Dominican Republic with Father Regino who she also interviewed during this same trip so that he could share his experiences living and serving along the Haitian-Dominican border in Myers’ anthology.
