As I’ve mentioned it in quite a few posts, taking part in conferences is a great way of getting your name out there and getting some exposure. I’ve been accepted to another conference, however as it takes place in Gdansk on March 22nd, I will still be in Morocco at that time. Luckily, in our day and age, it is possible to send e-versions of presentations, so I’m happy to share that I’ll be e-attending another conference! This conference is on the topic of trauma and nightmare. As I have done quite a lot of research on the horrible procedure that is Female Genital Mutilation, I decided to apply for this conference to share my thoughts and observations on this topic. I will be filming the presentation in the coming weeks, so stay tuned as I will be posting it in another blog post!
After spending a month in Uganda and being prompted to explore the Social Factors Impacting the Prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Uganda for the class “Desire, Work and Love II” taught by Dana Cudney, I developed a passion for this topic. Afterwards, having gained a lot of knowledge on this topic, I wanted to investigate it further. This second research was conducted in April 2018, during my second undergraduate year, for the course “Research and Data Analysis” taught by Moira Ferguson at Laurentian University. The final report explores the statistical background of HIV in fishing communities in Uganda and, furthermore, discusses the reasons behind high HIV rates in certain communities from a sociological aspect.
