Research at Davidson: Grace Fletcher, part 2

Host: Katie Randa

Special Guest
Grace Fletcher ’11

Takeaways

  • What is the Davidson Research Initiative?
  • Grace has spent a total of three months living, working, and doing research in and around Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Her senior thesis—for her CIS major in Latin American Studies—will bring together all of her experiences in this area into a finished project. This capstone project will argue that the high levels of childhood malnutrition in indigenous Maya communities in Guatemala cannot be completely explained by poverty. Instead, she contends that mothers’ conceptions, knowledge, and beliefs about appropriate weaning diets for young children are also significant factors, based in individual and community experience, and the social, cultural, and historical context of these particular communities.
