Erinnya lyange nze Lauren/Namakula, ne nsanyuse kukulaba wano ku blog yange!
My name is Lauren/Namakula, and I'm happy to see you here on my blog!

I am a second year PhD Student in the Development Studies program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research interests are in gender, women's labor force participation, and concepts of power and empowerment. My research will eventually be focused in Uganda - the site of all of previous research and my home from 2008-2009.

Learning Luganda has been a central joy and challenge of my PhD education. This blog is a public diary of sorts, a place to share my weekly experiences, reflections on language learning, and some of the tactics I'm using to study the language independently.

Nuusbira okyagala!
I hope you enjoy it!
