In the latest of our Graduate Research Forum series, first year UVic Political Science PhD student Lynn Ng Yu Ling will present on her doctoral work, which focuses on foreign domestic workers in Singapore and finding a place for 'voices from the bottom', that is, allowing care workers themselves to offer perspectives on what 'care' means, instead of the mainstream thinking of the '3Ds': dirty, dangerous, difficult. UVic Law PhD student Qian Liu will serve as commentator.
