In this podcast Saowanee Alexander of Ubon Ratchathani University talks to Petra Desatova from NIAS about Thailand’s politically less privileged people: who are they and why do they matter? How do they fight against the state elites? And why did they appropriate derogatory names, such as serfs and red buffaloes, used by the elites? Join us for a fascinating talk about ordinary Thai people, language and politics.
