Hudson McFann
I am a PhD candidate in geography at Rutgers University, where I am writing my dissertation on the history and legacies of Khao I Dang refugee camp, built in Thailand after the fall of the Khmer Rouge. I am also coordinating a public history project called "Recollecting Khao I Dang."

Prior to beginning my PhD study, I completed a BA in geography at Ohio State, an MA in political ecology and ethnographic film at NYU, and spent an academic year in Canada on a Fulbright grant.

I am an historical and political geographer, and my research interests include the history and politics of humanitarianism, aesthetics, theories of memory and archives, oral history, political violence, and waste. Much of my recent work has focused on war, genocide, and displacement in Cambodia and Southeast Asia since the mid-twentieth century.

I live in New York, where I am also active as an artist and designer and am training as a typewriter technician.
