I Live Here

"I Live Here" is a multimedia publication that presents the first-hand stories of refugees and displaced people in four specific areas of the world, through their own words, photographs and stories, and in collaboration with artists of various different media. Together, the book’s four volumes explore such issues as underage sex workers, child soldiers, disappeared women and the binding ties of common humanity. All material in the book is based on first person accounts collected over the past six years. Mirroring the multimedia approach of the book, Kirshner has been teaching an IAP course at MIT. The course asks students to create their own short video based on hidden stories that need to be heard within the greater Boston community. The results will be featured on the CIS website and will be shown at the event on January 29. Mia Kirshner has worked as an actor in film and television; among her credits are Brian De Palma’s The Black Dahlia and The L Word. I Live Here is her first book.
