Report from Uganda

Ethnographic Fieldwork in UgandaIn summer 2018, Kayla Davis, an anthropology doctoral student in the Disasters, Displacement, and Human Rights program, conducted ethnographic fieldwork in a slum community of Kampala in order to study perceptions of urban poverty. In connection with Slum Dwellers International (SDI), Davis visited the slum a few times a week and was featured in local media coverage for her work. Davis is finding that economic activity in the Kampala community is exceptional because its residents provide services for the middle/upper class members of the city.
