The Kellogg Institute for International Studies, part of the University of Notre Dame’s new Keough School of Global Affairs, is an interdisciplinary community of scholars that promotes research, provides educational opportunities, and builds linkages related to democracy and human development.
Luke Reifenberg is interested in the intersection of linguistics and immigration. Through the Kellogg International Scholars Program, Reifenberg assists Professor Clemens Sedmak in the production of a publication regarding the intersection of accompaniment and the current European immigration crisis.
Last summer, Reifenberg traveled to Calais, France, with funding from the Hesburgh-Yusko Scholars Program, the Glynn Family Honors Program, and the Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures. While in Europe, Reifenberg conducted interviews and assisted several charities in providing direct humanitarian aid to refugees in Northern France and Belgium.
