The Center for Southeast Asian Studies organizes and sponsors a number of events such as lectures, film screening, workshops, symposia, conferences, exhibits, and performances throughout the year. Several of these events are in collaboration with other U-M units, and are often free and open to the public. To see what we have planned for this semester, please view our poster»
WCED Lecture. Impunity as State Formation: Dictatorship and the Future of Justice in Thailand
Tyrell Haberkorn is an associate professor of Southeast Asian studies in the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her work is primarily focused on state violence and dissident cultural politics in Thailand. She is the author of "Revolution Interrupted: Farmers, Students, Law and Violence in Northern Thailand" (University of Wisconsin Press, 2011), which rethinks the meaning of revolution in terms of legal rather than armed struggle, and "In Plain Sight: Impunity and Human Rights in Thailand" (University of Wisconsin Press, 2018), a new history of post-absolutist Thailand written through the lens of impunity. Tyrell also writes and translates frequently about Southeast Asia for a broad, public audience, including "Dissent," "Foreign Affairs," "Los Angeles Review of Books," "openDemocracy," and "Prachatai." Her work has been funded by fellowships from Fulbright, the Australian Research Council, the Association for Asian Studies, the Radcliffe Institute, and the Einstein Forum. She can be reached via email at email@example.com.
