Our winter break in Taiwan starts next week1 and Shashwati and I have a pretty busy schedule of talks, conferences, and film screenings. I thought I’d post them all here so I can easily update the information in case anyone in Vietnam, Cambodia, or the UK wants to meet up with us or see our films.
We will each be giving a talk in Vietnam, complete with live-Vietnamese translation. I don’t know all the details yet, but these will both be held at the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities, Ton Duc Thang University. Both talks will be held in the Studio Room, floor 5, Library Building.
- January 16th. 1:30-3pm. “Collaboration against ethnography: How colonial history shaped the making of an ethnographic film” (Kerim) link to paper
- January 18th. 1:30-3pm. “Painting a Himalayan Urbanism” (Shashwati) link to paper

Winter break in Taiwan falls over the lunar new year, not Christmas↩
