Department of Anthropology 4.28

The Department of Anthropology’s Seminar Series is pleased to announce the upcoming presentation by Dr. Ellen Boccuzzi, University of California at Berkeley, on “Reading Migration: Thai Migrant Literature as Ethnographic Source”.

Dr. Boccuzzi will present on her recent dissertation research conducted in Bangkok, Thailand.  Dr. Boccuzzi argues that literary texts by migrant writers provide a window onto the personal negotiations and acts of identity-making that go hand-in-hand with adaptation to a new home. Using contemporary Thai literature by migrant writers as an ethnographic source, this talk will explore the personal impacts of migration and urbanization on rural-urban migrants to Bangkok.
