Fieldwork is an important component of my research and I have been fortunate to be able to conduct participant observation in three different countries of the former Soviet Union Latvia, Russia, and Ukraine.
I have documented my experiences conducting research and living in this region, where I was able to get a hands on experience with another culture and volunteer at a local at Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), on two different blogs.
Here is my blog called Eastern Exploits, where I document my research and work on human trafficking issues. The meaning of Eastern Exploits is twofold One: A striking or notable deed, feat or adventure Two: to utilize for profit or take advantage. This blog encompasses both of these definitions as I document my travels throughout Eastern Europe and my research on human trafficking in the former Soviet UnionHere is my blog called Adventures in Latvia that I kept while on my Fulbright Fellowship so you can read more about this great opportunity.
