My area of focus is twentieth century Cambodian Gender and Women's History. In particular, I am interested in the gendered process of urbanization and modernization in the postcolonial cold war era. Other areas of interest include gender and sexuality, print media, education, colonialism, modernity, and nation-building. In my dissertation, I will be using gender, feminist, archival, and oral history methods.
