Lament in an Affluent Era: Politics of Memory among Kazakhs in China

Using feminist, oral history, and memory studies methods, she examines the embodied practice of Kazakh social memory as well as societal changes from socialist collectivization to post-Mao China. Her research interests include performance, anthropology of ritual and oral tradition, indigenous knowledge, and environmental justice. Her work is published in Central Asian Survey.

The Cornell Contemporary China Initiative brings leading figures from around the world to present at a weekly forum on issues crucial to our current world, and also is building an archive of resources on these topics.
