"Hari's Story: A Narrative of Disability and Nepal." Photographs by Kyle Knight on display through February at Perkins Library in the Old Perk Gallery. Exhibit organized by the DUU Visual Arts Committee.
Kyle Knight is a Trinity senior majoring in cultural anthropology with a
philosophy minor. In the fall of 2006 he participated in the School for
International Training's Tibetan and Himalayan Studies Program. During the
program's independent study period, he rented a room above the Maitri Griha
home in Kathmandu, Nepal. There Kyle met Hari, a young boy whose story became the focus of Kyle's interests in disability, ethnographic research, and photography.
Kyle continued his research in Nepal last summer under the auspices of a Duke Center for International Studies Global Health research grant. After he returned to Duke, Kyle worked under the guidance of Van Hillard of the University Writing Program to transform the narratives into an etho-biographical essay about Hari. The photos in the exhibit illustrate Kyle's essay titled "Until He Can Walk."
