Event Details

The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility and Global Studies at The New School are excited to announce The Greek Refugee Crisis: Talk by Kate Schoenbach, followed by a Q&A with Kate and Noemi Mena Montes. 

Kate Schoenbach is a multimedia journalist and BBC contributor who focuses on global humanitarian issues. Through video, photography, and text she creates compelling narratives, shining a light on social injustices.

Kate’s portfolio (which can be found here) highlights her ability to connect with a broad range of subjects throughout the world, from the Himba in Namibia, to middle-eastern refugees in Greece. Through visual storytelling, Kate wishes to encourage a dialogue about the beauty, diversity, and synchronicity of our shared humanity.

Kate’s work has been published in BBC News, BBC Travel, Al Jazeera, New Era Publication Corporation, among others. She has been invited to share her work with New York City’s Columbia University, the Center for International Human Rights at John Jay College, and Erasmus University in Rotterdam.
