So what do these two men have in common?


They’re "returnees" -- people who returned to the United States after life-changing experiences abroad and made those experiences part of their careers.

If you’re a returnee too, we would like to talk to you about your experiences and how they affect your life now, back in the United States at George Mason University

We are interviewing three kinds of people:

  • Those who have lived abroad and been educated abroad (whether in local schools or overseas American schools)
  • Veterans who have finished at least one tour of duty overseas
  • Returning exchange students who have finished at least one semester overseas
If you would be willing to be interviewed, please contact David Haines in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at:
