Fisher Authors 'At Home in the World: Globalization and the Peace Corps in Nepal'

March 8, 2013
 

Jim Fisher, John W. Nason Professor of Asian Studies and Anthropology, Emeritus, has published his book At Home in the World: Globalization and the Peace Corps in Nepal. The book provides a detailed, first-hand account of the impact of the first contingent of American Peace Corps Volunteers to live and work in Nepal. The account not only explores the successes and failures of the Volunteers in their efforts to have a positive effect on Nepalese development, but also the reverse effects of their transformative experience on the lives of the Volunteers themselves.
