erica_lawsonMeet the new Undergraduate Chair, Prof Erica Lawson
Erica Lawson was recently awarded a $110,000 grant from Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) to research Peace Huts, Gender Equality, and Women’s Post-Conflict Aspirations in Liberia. Prof. Lawson was drawn to the topic through the documentary “Pray the Devil Back to Hell”. The film documents the role of women to end the Liberian Civil War (1989-2003). Mass protests led by Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace played a major role in encouraging peace talks, and eventually putting an end to the war. In June, Prof Lawson and Women's Studies student Ola Osman headed to Liberia, Africa to conduct field research. We look forward to a summary of ther research and more about this important project.
