Abstract

Rethinking Local History through Collaboration Th e Creation of the Cambodian Community History and Archive Project SUSAN NEEDHAM, California State University, Dominguez Hills KAREN QUINTILIANI, California State University, Long Beach When we started conducting research with Cambodian refugees, fi rst as anthropology students and later as anthropologists at local universities, we did not think much about what would eventually happen to the re- search materials we gathered and produced.
