Hi, I’m Nadya. I love research and I would like to do it for the rest of my life. By formation, I’m a mix of sociology and anthropology; agrarian studies and political ecology. My PhD project is an ethnography of relationship between community rangers and farmers within and adjacent to Gunung Leuser National Park, Aceh, Indonesia. I am curious about conservation labour regime, especially within the context of agrarian transformation in a place where “mainstream” conservation has been entangled with the particularities of the local who have a collective trauma of tsunami, three decades of civil conflict, and Islamic normativity. Previously, I have done long-term research on the political economy of forest sector in Indonesia (2014), forest tenure reform (2013), the social economic recovery of disaster victims in Mount Merapi (2012), and transnational agrarian and environmental movement’s campaign against deforestation (2011). I have also done several short-term research projects on the issue of food and agrarian activism. Since 2011, I actively volunteer at agrarian movements in Indonesia, especially as an interpreter. I also translated Tania Li’s latest book, Land’s End, into Bahasa Indonesia. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to have further conversation. http://nadya.wordpress.com
