Get ready for Cute Studies! This podcast episode features Mānoa Anthro's own Chris Yano and her work on Hello Kitty.

In searching for a colleague I went to grad school with @ManoaAnthro, I found this write up of her documentary film on the plight of Cambodian refugees in the U.S. & encounters with the criminal legal system. Check it out: https://t.co/n6TpdMYqqp #ExiledFilm cc: @jan_brunson
