Catholic Charities of Tennessee Refugee Services: An Ethnographic Study
McInnis, Leila W.
An internship with a nongovernment organization provides an opportunity for an anthropology graduate student to learn how an anthropologist might be useful in these organizations. This internship report summarizes working with Catholic Charities of Tennessee Refugee Services in Nashville, Tennessee. Internship duties involved assisting a caseworker in the day to day activities they were involved in while helping refugees become self-sufficient. This report also provides information on how this organization operates when working with refugees as well as an assessment of how an anthropologist might play a role in a refugee agency.
