Tune in to The Graduates this Tuesday @ 9AM to meet Juliana Friend, a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology. Juliana is studying gender and new media in West Africa. Through her research, Juliana explores how digital media is transforming the Senegalese ethic of sutura (“discretion” or “modesty”). Tune in to hear the ways sutura shapes Senegalse life, why Juliana chose Senegal as her country of focus, and more.
