Dr. Mireille Mazard, 2015-2016
Mireille Mazard’s doctoral fieldwork examined the process by which the Nusu people came to inhabit the Chinese state as marginal subjects, constructing politically situated identities through their appropriation of socialist discourse. Since completing her PhD at the University of Cambridge in 2011, Mireille has taught Anthropology at the University of Paññasastra, Cambodia, and the University of Regina, Canada. During her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Warwick, she studied the expression of emotion in online discourse. When not immersed in anthropology, Mireille enjoys jazz singing.
