I'm Cheryl Yin, an anthropologist, linguist, and Southeast Asianist who primarily does research in Cambodia. I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Carleton College in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. I completed my PhD in Linguistic Anthropology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My dissertation "Khmer Honorifics: Re-emergence and Change after the Khmer Rouge" is based on 2 years of ethnographic fieldwork conducted in Cambodia. Before arriving at Carleton, I was a UC Berkeley Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of South & Southeast Asian Studies.
