Thiti Jamkajornkeiat

South and Southeast Asian Studies

Thiti Jamkajornkeiat is a PhD candidate in South and Southeast Asian Studies with a Designated Emphasis in Critical Theory. His theoretical inquiries concern a rethinking of Marxism with decoloniality to develop a more generative framework for explaining the decolonizing periphery and transforming it away from racial capitalism. His intellectual-historical dissertation, “Peripheral Dialectics: Internationalist Praxis of Indonesian Marxism (1943-1966),” recovers the subterranean internationalist strand of Indonesian Marxism foundational to the creation of both a socialist, decolonial Indonesian nation at the global periphery and inter-racial solidarity against the capitalist-imperialist nexus.
