ECS Senior Caroline Subbiah Awarded ReachOut Fellowship for Public Service

March 23, 2023

Caroline Subbiah, a member of the Class of 2023, is one of four seniors awarded a fellowship from ReachOut 56-81-06, an alumni-funded effort that supports year-long public service projects after graduation.

Subbiah, of Dallas, Texas, is an English concentrator pursuing certificates in European Cultural Studies and Values and Public Life. As part of the ECS community, she is among students and faculty who share an interest in the interdisciplinary study of European cultures and societies across a range of periods. 

As the recipient of the ReachOut International Fellowship, Subbiah will work with the London-based Living Refugee Archive. As part of an oral history project, she will document Chilean communities’ history of exile following the Chilean coup d’état in September 1973.

“Through this project, I hope to harness the power of testimony to promote healing and progress in Chilean communities,” Subbiah said. “I also hope to establish a more complete public record of Chilean refugees’ experiences, both during and after exile, with the concept of transitional justice in mind.”
