Lecturer of Southeast Asian Politics, University of Warwick

Seb Rumsby is an interdisciplinary researcher with a wide range of interests including everyday politics, labour exploitation, undocumented migration, ethno-religious politics, grassroots development and non-national histories. What connects his work is a regional focus on Southeast Asia and, in particular, Vietnamese people, state and society. His PhD concerned the everyday political economy of market expansion, Christian conversion and ethnic inequality among a marginalised minority group in northern Vietnam, and will soon be published as a monograph with University of Wisconsin Press. Since then, Seb has turned his attention to exploring the lived experiences of undocumented Vietnamese migrants living and working under the radar amidst an increasingly migrant-hostile UK society and political regime.
