The purpose of my research project is to produce new
knowledge on how social class is created and enforced by
traditions. Here, the funeral rituals of the Thai elite
will be used as a case study. In this presentation I will
elaborate on particular research questions and the methods
used during the upcoming fieldwork. Further, I would like
to discuss possible ways of connecting my project into the
Southeast Asia research focus.
