I am delighted to have been awarded a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Abroad Fellowship to continue my 16 months of ethnographic fieldwork in Leogane and Port-au-Prince, Haiti until the fall of 2018. The Fulbright-Hays Program provides grants to colleges and universities to fund individual doctoral students conducting extended research abroad. The highly competitive program is designed to deepen research knowledge on and help the nation develop capability in areas of the world not generally included in US curricula. This research into the communicative practices used in the tacit and explicit design of Haitian residential architecture forms the base of my dissertation, Speaking, Gesturing, Drawing, Building: Relational Techniques of a Kreyòl Architecture.
