Alyssa Kaelin, Cheyenne, completed her fieldwork in Rasuwa District, Nepal. Her research presentation "Commercialization of Homestays in the Himalayan Region" examines the internal tensions and socio-economic hierarchies in a commercialized homestay village in Nepal. Her fieldwork in the village of Briddim allowed her to gain practical experience useful for a future career in the Himalayan region
Three University of Wyoming Department of Global and Area Studies Program presented their fieldwork Wednesday, June 4, at 5:30 p.m. at the Centennial Library.
The students discussed their independent research conducted abroad last summer as part of the "What in the World?" program. The program highlights the varied fieldwork that UW master's degree students from the Department of Global and Area Studies Program completed for their M.A. thesis projects.
"These projects highlight the kind of exciting and innovative projects that international studies students at UW complete for their degree," says Jean Garrison, Global and Area Studies Program director. She says it is cutting-edge work that shapes their education.
