The working title of my Ph.D. dissertation is "Photography and the appearance of human rights in Thailand"

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