We are a couple, both academics (Historian and Sociologist) who met in grad school in California at UC Berkeley. Asia is a transplant from the east coast--Baltimore, MD to be exact--but considers herself to be a citizen of the world. She is currently an Assistant Professor in Atlanta. Fithawee was born and raised in Indiana and went to college in Chicago, where he has returned for dissertation research. Most of time we are writing and reading, but we also enjoy documentary films, Vietnamese food, beaches, and travel.
