Online virtual world video game stigmas and subjective well-being across generational frames regarding the good life and the use of time and how these differences impact subjective well-being.
In 2015, Cheri graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology and started graduate school at Colorado State University during the fall of the same year. During her time at CSU, she has traveled to Utila, Honduras with Dr. Suzanne Kent and earned a fellowship with the Center for Collaborative Conservation (CCC) at CSU. They spent 2 weeks on the island doing ethnographic work; interviewing locals and working as volunteers with the various NGOs. The methods courses that Cheri took from Dr. Jeff Snodgrass were invaluable for the project and no doubt helped immensely in the field. She is also producing a video about the project for the CCC and will be presenting a paper in November at the AAA conference with co-authors from the University of Memphis, as well as a poster with her cohorts and Jeff Snodgrass. The experience was amazing and was interesting to learn more about how anthropological methods are used in conservation efforts.
