In this video, I provide an overview of my research investigating cultural revival in post-genocide Cambodia, specifically looking at the intersection between Khmer Buddhism,  kinship bonds, and land bonds in the reconstruction of social, moral, and spiritual order.

Hi! My name is Bryley (she/her), and I am a second-year student at Columbia University. I plan on majoring in History, and I am deeply interested in memory, religion, and the preservation and adaptation of culture. As a Laidlaw Scholar, I am researching Khmer Buddhist revival in post-genocide Cambodia, looking especially at how social, spiritual, and moral orders were and are intertwined in processes of reconstruction.
