Dr. Serena Cosgrove - Centering Marginalized Women’s Voices in the Democratic Republic of Congo

 

Since my first trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2013, I’ve returned to the eastern city of Goma regularly to continue a longitudinal research project about the impact of vocational training on young women survivors of sexual assault and other forms of gender-based violence.  With this research assistantship, I will have the student researcher work with me on data analysis, summarizing scholarly literature available on this topic, and preparing a written piece for inclusion in the manuscript/book project currently titled Centering Marginalized Women in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
