Some reflections on my past month with Butterfly Space in Malawi… including technology challenges, ideas around sustainability, and Bieber. Justin Bieber.
This blog post serves as both an introduction to the organization I’m working with and a theoretical overview of the research project I’m undertaking with the support of UVic CAPI and the QES scholar’s program.
Raviv Litman, a fellow Crossing Borders Commonwealth Scholar, conducted a short introductory interview with me about my personal background, my academic interests, and my research goals as I prepare to leave for Malawi, Africa.
The following is an interview that Emily Ashton conducted for me (Raviv Litman). Before we begin our respective research terms the four of us crossing borders scholarship recipients conducted interviews about who we are, where we are going, what we are doing, and what it means to us. This is as much a learning experince about creating podcasts as an introduction. We are all going to different places with different research topics. Since I am going to Singapore to work with returning international students who are mobile and coming from many different contexts my methods, topics and language use will be mobile and diverse to reflect this.
