Nana Adjeiwaa-Manu ’16 Honors Thesis: Grieving for the Ungrievable

Nana Adjeiwaa-Manu ’16 spent over a year developing her thesis Grieving for the Ungrievable: Support Systems Among Bereaved Ghanaians in the United States. “I’m looking at how support systems and ethnic identity work together to shape how Ghanaians grieve in the United States,” Nana says.

She attended a traditional Ghanaian funeral for her uncle’s wife during sophomore year, inspiring her interest in Ghanaian grief literature. Nana, the daughter of Ghanaian immigrants, explains that “in Ghanaian culture we mourn very publicly through dance, through music, and through elaborate costumes. It’s more or less a tradition of celebration, like a party--and I wanted to understand why Ghanaians mourn in this peculiar way.”

Using interviews from 26 Ghanaian immigrant adults, youth, and children of immigrants born in the US, Nana says she is studying “the positive and negative aspects of community building as they grieve.” She explains that people turn to all kinds of sources as coping mechanisms, noting that, in the absence of religion, many turn to artistic expression.
