My thesis aims to investigate the impact of rural urban migration on rural women and children in Ghana. Additionally, this thesis will seek to review the policy interventions that have been implemented in an effort to arrest this trend within the past two decades (1990-2010). The study will also examine the efficacy of these policy interventions.
Leon Crane Bear (MA in Native American Studies - Supervisor Carol Williams, WGST)
My main thesis project will involve the broad question of sovereignty and particularly in terms of my community of Siksika. What does sovereignty mean to the contemporary Siksika Nation and how is sovereignty understood in light of the Indian Act (1876)? I will look at Siksika people and culture prior and during Euro Canadian contact and how sovereignty was expressed and manifested in social, economic, political and spiritual aspects of Siksika community. What fragments of pre Indian Act sovereignty exists today?
Arielle Perrotta (MA in WGST - Supervisor Carol Williams)
My thesis "Vaginal Birth Experiences: Exploring Contemporary Maternal Perspectives of Primigravidas," uses a phenomenological research approach to explore contemporary mothers' vaginal birth experiences in Southern Alberta. By phenomenology, I mean the study of the lived experience from the perspective of the participant. Through semi-structured interviews, this appraoch will be used to deepen human understanding of everyday life experiences, such as birth (Van Manen, 1977).
