William Noseworthy
ImageWilliam B. Noseworthy is a PhD candidate in History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His minor is in Diaspora History and Literature and his interests include Borderlands Theory, Highland-Lowland Relations and the History of the South China Sea. He received a Bachelors of Arts in History and Religion with minors in East Asian Studies and Jewish studies from Oberlin College in 2007, before going on to complete a Masters of Arts in History at UW-Madison in 2011. He has recently published on the subject of Vietnamese Literature in The Middle Ground Journal and in an edited volume on Vietnamese and American New Formalism. He has also published articles on highland-lowland relations in Southeast Asia for Asian Highlands Perspectives and ASEAS: the Austrian Journal of Southeast Asian Studies, study pieces on Cham religious ceremonies and Cham identity for The IIAS Newsletter and book reviews for The IIAS Newsletter, Studies on Asia, Explorations, New Asia Books and Cha. With support from a Center for Khmer Studies and the Herfurth Fellowship, Noseworthy is spending 2013 to spring 2014 in Vietnam and Cambodia researching for his dissertation, tentatively titled "Cham Scholars and 'Remembering the Boundaries,' Akhar Thrah, 1651-1969." The project explores how a diverse group of authors re-solidified their communal identity around a manuscript tradition and created an intellectual middle ground during several centuries of crisis. In his free time, Noseworthy enjoys writing poetry, cooking and playing the guitar. [Review]
