Dr. Christine Finnan’s Sabbatical in India

Posted by: tillilied | August 25, 2015 | No Comment |

TwoDuring the 2014-15 year, Dr. Christine Finnan (Departments of Sociology/Anthropology and Teacher Education) spent six months studying the Kalinga Institute for Social Sciences (KISS) in Bhubaneswar India. KISS is a residential school providing free education, room, board, medical care and vocational, artistic and athletic programs to 25,000 indigenous tribal children. This school served as a fascinating research site in which to study school organization and culture and the effects of attending a residential on the students and their families.  Dr. Finnan’s research was supported by the Fulbright Commission and the College of Charleston. She will be presenting her research at a departmental brown bag lunch on Wednesday March 16, 2016 at 12:00.
