The Center for Southeast Asian Studies is proud to announce two Affiliate Fellows this summer! The two researchers are working together at the National Archives of Cambodia on a nomination to include the collection from the French colonial period (Fonds de la résidence supérieure du Cambodge) as part of the UNESCO Memory of the World Registry.
Dr. Tara Tran is supervising the application process. She is a historian of empire, gender, and race in Asia, with a focus on Cambodia. She completed her doctoral work at Johns Hopkins University and is currently a faculty member at the American University of Phnom Penh, where she emphasizes postcolonial and feminist approaches to history.
Olufemi Adewuyi is the research assistant for the project and will be based in Phnom Penh for the summer months. He is from Oxford, England and recently finished his undergraduate course at the University of Manchester in Modern History with Economics. His future plans include studying for the master’s degree in archives and records management at the University of Liverpool.
CSEAS hosts throughout the year visiting researchers working on Southeast Asia as Affiliate Fellows, providing access to AUPP library resources and databases, connections to our diverse networks, and office space on our beautiful campus.
