Luc Nadeau - Blog 2: A Brief Story of Race, Power and the Malaysian State

Post type: 
Blog post

Malaysia is an extremely racialized society. Walking around Kuala Lumpur, it is impossible not to notice the fragmentation and construction of some of the city’s many neighbourhoods according to racial division. In Ampang Point, the neighbourhood in which I reside, I can see three distinct communities on my walk to work alone (Malay, Arab, Korean). Walking around is one method of rudimentary observation, talking about it with those who experience it is another. And that’s just it; it’s impossible to avoid the topic in conversation.

Sasha Mosky - Blog 2: A bag for your bag? Reflections of waste in Delhi.

Becoming familiar with a new place involves learning about new cultures, trying new food, and becoming familiar with a new locality. For me, getting to know a new place also involves an understanding of how actions indirectly or directly intersect with local people and ecologies. More specifically, this means reflecting on the ways in which my presence in a place requires the support of local people as well as the environment.

Halo dari sisi lain dunia!

Two months into my placement and it feels like a whirlwind! I have had the unbelievable fortune of building 16 beautiful new friendships with strong, independent, and thoughtful young women from all over Indonesia, brought to Melbourne in the pursuit of their hopes and dreams.

Saturday, June 10th, marked nearly a month of living and working in India for me. It also marked one of the most interesting and peculiar days of my life so far. Until then I had been spending almost all of my time in Delhi, which is of course a bustling and relatively diverse megacity. While Delhi itself had already been challenging in it’s own way (like any new city), it is not representative of most of India and I was about to be in for a much different experience.  Here I will attempt to recount and unpack the events of the 10th.

Bhiamie Eckford-Williamson - Blog 3: At the journey's end

Post type: 
Blog post

Well, I have made it home to Australia in one piece! After almost two years of living in Canada, I returned to the warmth and sunshine of my great southern land. It is a strange feeling of being home again, and as much as this saying is insufficient, my life is not the same since I first embarked on my international studies. This (my final) blog will detail some of the significant learning’s that have impacted me most. By reflecting in this way I will attempt to explain how I feel my outlook to life, work and politics has changed.

Many greetings CAPI community!

I have to say, I am not sure of the best way to kick this blog post off. A lot has been happening, and it seems like I have been incredibly lucky thus far! I kicked off my research by presenting at, and acting as a convener for, the Multimedia, Mobility, & the Digital Southeast Asian Family workshop that took place at La Trobe University here in Melbourne towards the end of April and it was a smashing success! I met many spectacular scholars whose research interests were very relevant to my own, and many important conversations were had. I also received a great deal of positive and constructive feedback for my own research at the most perfect time.
