Hannah Russell returns from fieldwork in Ghana

Hannah spent fall quarter in Takoradi, Ghana where she worked with NGO Hen Mpoana. Her project aims to examine the potential for nutritional security in coastal communities where there have been decreased landings of the small pelagic stocks the artisinal fleet depend upon. Hannah's fieldwork included surveying female fish processors, sellers, and consumers in fishery-dependent communities and her resulting thesis will include discussion of feminist interviewing techniques and the Gender and Development framework.
