Scenes from the Streets of Surabaya
Christopher Brown

Chris Brown, a graduate student in sociocultural anthropology and Fulbright-Hays grant recipient, has recently returned from Surabaya, Indonesia. There, he worked to better understand the lives of a diverse group of people, primarily kids, who make a living on the city's streets. Many of these kids participated in a project to express their points of view through photographs.

Music of the Mekong
Gabe Strand

From March 22-July 13, 2005, Gabriel Strand, a graduate student in ethnomusicology, will be traveling through Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, following the course of the Mekong River. He is recording music he finds along the river: traditional, pop, new, old, whatever is there to discover. This trip is made possible by a generous Bonderman Fellowship that allows UW students to explore the world and their ideas about it.
