I am a PhD student in sociology at Columbia University and am interested in international development and state-building, the production of international news media and more generally in politics in the Middle East and Central Asia.

On the side, I do production video and still photography work for opera/theater and hope to collaborate as a photographer and videographer with other documentarians and ethnographers on their work in New York.

Kabul living expenses

I’m writing up a university grant proposal for a research project in Kabul and they want a budget of projected expenses. Any advice on how much I should pencil in for
1) lodging at a guest house in Kabul for 3 months (if there are cheaper options I’m all ears)
2) payment for a fixer/Pashto translator (they need not speak English, just Dari is fine, which maybe means lower rates?) for 2-3 days/week for 3 months
much appreciated,
