Fieldwork in Botswana
Dr. Kelley A. Crews was awarded a Fulbright Faculty Fellowship for 2009 – 2010 under the Africa Regional Research Program for her project “The Ecology of Rural HIV/AIDS: Forecasting HIV/AIDS Vulnerable Landscapes and Populations in the Okavango Delta, Botswana”. This work extended ongoing collaborative projects examining human-environment interactions with particular respect to environmental disturbance and livelihood. She was also awarded a grant from NSF with Dr. Brian H. King of Pennsylvania State University, “RAPID: Perception of and Adaptation to Extreme Flooding Disturbances in the Okavango Delta, Botswana”. Pilot projects supporting these proposals were supported by the Population Research Center Summer Fellow in 2008 (for “Disease Vulnerabilities in the Okavango Delta”) and by a semester-long Humanities Institute Faculty Fellow appointment in Spring 2008 for her project “The Ecology of HIV/AIDS & Co-Factors in Sub-Saharan Africa”.
