Tomas Cole defends his MA thesis

October 26, 2021 - 16:27

Tomas Cole is a student from the Department of Anthropology at University of Copenhagen and has been a workplace student at NIAS for the last 6 months.

Last week he defended his MA thesis, which focused on: the existential limits of autonomy on the lives of Karen (an ethnic group from Burma) refugees living in Thailand who have been injured by landmines. In particular how political violence and protracted internment in closed refugee camps plays into intersubjective relations and how people strive to strike a balance between depending on others and maintaining a sense of autonomy.

We congratulate him on his top grade, and wish him all the best for the future!
