Dr. Zraly spent the summer in Santa Fe at the School for Advanced Research (SAR) as an Ethel-Jane Westfeldt Bunting Scholar. While in residence, she prepared a manuscript and interview guide for her project entitled "Shaping Experiences of Inequality: Resilience and Emotion among Youth Heads of Household in Kigali, Rwanda". At SAR, Zraly also delivered a colloquium on the topic of "Quelling Anguish: A Political Economy of Emotions in the Everyday Life of Youth Heads of Household in Kigali, Rwanda." Zraly is scheduled to present additional findings from this research project, sponsored by the NSF International Research Fellowship Program, at the upcoming 2009 American Anthropological Association Annual Meetings in Philadelphia, where she will give a paper entitled "Youth-Led Households in Kigali: The Social and Emotional Worlds of a New African Public".
