Hey friends, thanks for clicking! This is just a quick interview I did with my CAPI colleague Liam to share a bit more about who I am (Chris, hi), where I’m going (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), and what I’ll be doing while I’m there (listen to find out!) Check back often to hear/see/read more about what’s going down in KL!
Hi friends, thanks for visiting! I'm Chris, a graduate student in social work at the University of Victoria with a focus in transnational migration and decolonial theory. If I look familiar, it's because I spent seven months last year in Malaysia on a CAPI placement, and through the Centre's generous support, I'll be returning to Southeast Asia this fall to work on a research project examining the impacts of displacement on youths' sense of identity, culture, and belonging, splitting time between Thailand and Malaysia. Feel free to follow this blog for updates, and don't hesitate to comment or get in touch if you want to hear more about what's happening in the field!
