Corinne Bancroft '10 gave a paper titled “A Story We Tell to Ourself: The Rhetoric of Border Narratives” at the International Conference on Narrative in Cleveland on April 8-11. This was the 25th anniversary of the conference and there were more than 300 papers presented by scholars from around the world. Bancroft was the only undergraduate student to present and is one of about six in the history of the conference. 

Bancroft has worked with No More Deaths, an organization that provides humanitarian aid to people crossing the Arizona border, for the past three years. In her paper she analyzes how the stories told about immigration on a national level in the United States affect the individual stories of the migrants she has encountered. She is a comparative literature major.
