Elizabeth Stites publishes in Women’s Studies International Forum

Elizabeth Stites and co-authors Roxani Krystalli, Alex Humphrey, and Nyuon Moses Gathuoy published their article “Cattle to cash: Changing marriage practices among displaced people in Bentiu, South Sudan” in Women’s Studies International Forum.

The authors trace the changes to marriage practices in the Bentiu Protection of Civilians site and adjacent areas of Rubkona and Bentiu towns in South Sudan’s Unity State. Specifically, they ask how, in the context of armed conflict and displacement, the shift from a cattle-based economy to one entailing greater use of cash has affected the meanings and processes of marriages.

The article comes out of the Social Connectedness, Livelihoods, and Resilience in Complex Emergencies project.

The article is available for free with this link until October 20, 2022.
