Ph.D in Human Rights.

Dissertation title: "Framing the Subject: Human Rights and Photography in Contemporary Thai History".

In the dissertation I investigate how engagements with photography of particularly violent events in Thailand produces history and memory that addresses state violence and impunity. My research interests are resistance and violence, photography and image practices among social movements, photography as sites of historical memory, nationalism, human rights activism, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

Teaching at the BA and MA program in human rights studies and supervise student essays. I also work as a unit administrator at the Center for East and Southeast Asian studies, Lund University. I have previously worked as student counselor and course administrator at Lund University.

My profile in Lund University research portal

The title of my PhD dissertation is Framing the Subjects: Human Rights and Photography in Contemporary Thailand (Lund University, 2020).

I study photography and activism for human rights in Thailand. The temporal and spatial point of departure is the 1970s political and violent events in Bangkok, but I also analyse contemporary photography that engages with questions concerning state violence and the production of impunity. The main question quiding this project is the relationship between photography and the appearance of a subject of human rights in the Thai nation-state. 

My research interests are human rights history and discourse, photography and images, archiving, political exile, nationalism and Thai political history.
