Jillian Morrison is a third-year graduating senior at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois and she will be graduating with a BA in Political Science with an international politics concentration and minors in French and Museum Studies. Prior to ASEF, Jillian has spent extensive time learning about the various political systems around the world and relevant modern political theorists. In March 2021, she presented her research project on increasing the ethical mineral mining practices in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo at the Pi Sigma Alpha National Student Research Conference. In addition to her political science courses, she has taken a special interest in oral history and museum studies leading her to intern at the Chicago History Museum in the Studs Terkel Oral History Center.
She is thrilled to have the opportunity to live and work in Slovenia this summer and looks forward to deepening her understanding of Slovenian political systems through oral history. She is also looking forward to solidifying relationships within the international Slovenian community. Outside of her academic and professional pursuits, Jillian enjoys rock climbing, fiber arts, and enjoying time with friends. She is certainly looking forward to taking advantage of Slovenia’s wonderful outdoor culture this summer and she cannot wait to begin this amazing adventure.
