Book About Somalis in Maine Featured

UMaine sociology professor Kim Huisman was interviewed for a Bangor Daily News story about a new book she and other UMaine faculty and staff edited. The book, “Somalis in Maine: Crossing Cultural Currents,” which contains personal stories, ethnography and essays about interactions between Somali refugees and Americans in Lewiston, include pieces by Huisman, Mazie Hough, the associate director of UMaine’s Women in the Curriculum and Women’s Studies Program, Kristin Langellier of the communication and journalism faculty, and Carol Nordstrom Toner, the Maine Studies program director. The BDN story also mentioned UMaine’s Somali Narrative Project, which began in 2004 with three Somali students.
