Giuseppe Bolotta joined the Nordic Asia Podcast to give insights into his work and experiences of writing his highly praised ethnography ‘Belittled Citizens: The Cultural Politics of Childhood on Bangkok’s Margins‘. 

Giuseppe shares experiences from the field, his close relationship to the children, and what childhood means in the socio-political context of Thailand.

New review in The Mekong Review:

Throughout the years, I have seen many foreigners […] try to engage with these children and depict their experiences accurately. But rarely do the results match up with the reality. In contrast, Bolotta’s research should be lauded for its attempt to capture and unpack their experiences with as much subtlety as possible.
