While working with a refugee resettlement organization, I had the honor of interacting with several Liberian refugees. We had a father reunited with his family (who was already resettled in the US) after 4-5 years.

That certainly provided the opportunity to observe some changes in social structure, as the wife and children had adapted to life in the states and therefore were filling different roles than they would have "back home".

Have you had any contact with Liberians living in the states?

Hello Sharon,
I'm looking at applying to the Harvard social anthropology graduate program. I'd like to talk with you more about your experience with the program there.
