I am an interdisciplinary doctoral student at New York University researching natural resource politics and social movements in the Niger Delta. Although my primary research interest is the role of women in oil-reform protests, this blog also explores issues of human rights, governmentality, geography, and economic power. I started it to offer my up-to-date observations from the ground as I spent the past year navigating the political terrain of the area. Since then, it has become a platform for analyzing the field data I gathered and also for discussing pertinent current events while I am a Research Fellow in Florence, Italy.
I encourage readers to send me a message with questions, comments or suggestions. I love learning. And although I will always support information for the sake of information, I do ask that no content on this blog be reproduced without proper credits. Thank you.
