Research trip to Leogane, Haiti
Faculty Research Grant
This grant supports Richman's research trip to Leogane, Haiti for two weeks in July, 2010, to conduct ethnographic research. This community lies very close to the epicenter of the earthquake, closer than either the capital of Port-au-Prince to the east or the town of Léogane to the west. As the subject of Richman's long-term research on religious and economic change, she has extensive longitudinal data about the community.
