Speech-Language Pathology in Ghana: An African-Centered Exploration
Bryanna Marshall, Speech-Language Pathology
Faculty Mentor: Professor Marcus Watson, Africana Studies
My research focuses on speech-language pathology in Ghana. I apply my exposure to Africana Studies particularly to methodology and interpretative lens, in response to the cultural limitations of the discipline of speech-language pathology. The National Black Association for Speech-Language and Hearing at SUNY Buffalo State was founded for this very reason. My paper on my experiences in Ghana is based on my presentation at the 2020 National Council for Black Studies conference in Atlanta. It first summarizes my African-centered research and its relevance to my deep historical, cultural, and psychological connections to the African continent. In my project, I explore opportunities to re-imagine the topic through the critical lens of Africana Studies’ questions and priorities.
