Leslie Butt: "Southeast Asian women, migration and family in the global era"

CAPI is pleased to share with you the write-up for Anthropology associate professor Leslie Butt's project titled "Southeast Asian women, migration and family in the global era," which she completed as part of her 2012-2017 Visiting Scholar term with CAPI (and accompanies her other recently-completed CAPI project, "Stateless children, parents & undocumented migration: An Indonesian case study​"). Dr. Butt and her international team completed field research (primarily in Singapore, Australia, and Canada) on how migrant professional women from Indonesia negotiate family relations in conditions of high mobility, shifting expectations concerning parenting, and exposure to transnational values around family and childrearing. The project also served as the medium for four UVic Anthropology graduate students to complete their theses.
