In Ghana, Dr. Tetzlaff researched in the Institute of African Studies and taught material on the African diaspora and women’s issues.

In addition to research and teaching, Dr. Tetzlaff adapted to living in Africa by learning that there was not just one way to do something. A great example of this is how she learned how to eat soup with her hands, which Dr. Tetzlaff will discuss during her lecture.

Join IU South Bend in welcoming back Dr. Tetzlaff back to campus and learn more about the culture of Ghana.
