Tyrell Haberkorn first traveled to Thailand in 1997 as an undergraduate student interested in international labor solidarity. Since then, her academic and human rights work has been focused on understanding and working against the recent past and present of state and para-state violence in Southeast Asia. She is currently completing a book manuscript about farmers' tenancy struggles between 1951 and 1976 in Chiang Mai and Lamphun provinces entitled Revolution Interrupted: farmers, law, and violence in northern Thailand. Tyrell Haberkorn received her BA in Cultural Studies and Creative Writing from UNC-Chapel Hill (1999) and her MA (2003) and PhD (2007) in Sociocultural Anthropology from Cornell University. Before coming to the ANU, she was a postdoctoral fellow in Peace and Conflict Studies at Colgate University from 2007 to 2009.
