It has been a long time since I have actively kept a blog. Since I was living in Ghana in 2008, in fact.

However, during fieldwork, I keep a journal that details every aspect of the day. It helps me keep track of the ups and downs of fieldwork, as well as remember both the mundane and exciting details that potentially impact my interviews and research as it unfolds. The fallibility of human memory has necessitated such detailed field notes.

This blog will be less personal than the journal, but will provide links to interesting research, scholarships and data sources and also provide a forum for me to discuss my research and fieldwork as it unfolds. Thanks for following along!
