LEVEL 3: Mike Thai Fieldwork 1981 - 1983





As of February 2015, this page was little more than a stub. Mike did fieldwork in one site, in Southern Thailand, on the coast, of Buddhist rice farmers, from 1981 through 1983 (over two and a half years). That work was the basis for his PhD thesis "Family Strategies and Social Organization in Southern Thailand". The thesis is now public domain, and a link is below. The few papers that came out of my thesis can be found through the link to the page for the thesis.

In addition to the material in the thesis, I collected other material on ceremonies, including pictures. This page contains links to the pages covering that material.
