Projects on Tea Garden Workers in India, and Migrant Laborers in SE Asia

Are you interested in collaborating on field research?
Absolutely, let's do this!
Well, kind of, but I'm also not sure
No Way, I don't collaborate.

I am working on projects looking at laborers experiences in the tea plantation regions of India as well as the experiences of migrant laborers in Cambodia and elsewhere in SE Asia, particularly since Covid-19 began (which has greatly limited their migration opportunities to places like Thailand). Any good references are appreciated. Any connections to scholars, junior or otherwise, is appreciated. Or just to chat about the projects and consider ways to collaborate.
