Eva Harman

Eva Harman's dissertation is a study of the effects of a fourteen-year civil war and post-war social life in Liberia. Her sixteen months of fieldwork in Liberia were supported by the Wenner Gren Foundation. In the field, she moved between households and schools, younger and older generations, market stands and kickball games, palm plantations and movie clubs, school assemblies and story-exchanging sessions, and rural and urban areas. She received support for writing her dissertation from the Fellowship of Woodrow Wilson Scholars and has been an invited guest at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology.
