Many congratulations to Denise Goh Hui Jun on the publication of her essay, 'Welcoming Possibility: Hospitality and the Rohingya Refugee' -- which was first conceived as part of her Independent Study Module with Dr Adam Groves -- in Berfrois: Intellectual Jousting in the Republic of Letters 

Her essay can be read here :

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
