Home SOS: Gender, Violence and Survival in Crisis Ordinary Cambodia

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Drawing on 15 years of fieldwork and over 300 interviews, Home SOS argues that the home is central to the violence and gendered contingency of existence in crisis ordinary Cambodia.

Provides an original book-length study which brings domestic violence and forced eviction into twin view

Offers relational insights between different violences to build an integrated understanding of women's experiences of home life

Mobilises the crisis ordinary as a critical pedagogy and imaginary through which to understand everyday gendered politics of survival

Positions domestic violence and forced eviction as manifestations of intimate war against women's homes and bodies located inside and outside of the traditional purview of war

Reaffirms and reprioritises the home as a political entity which is foundational to the concerns of human geography
