CKS April Lecture: Social stress, structural symbolic interactionism, and healing in Post-Conflict Cambodia

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Dear Friends,

The Center for Khmer Studies welcomes Leakhena NOU, PhD ., an Associate Professor of Sociology at California State University, Long Beach, and the founder and director of the Applied Social Research Institute of Cambodia to the lecture series. She will speak on :

Social stress, structural symbolic interactionism, and healing in Post-Conflict Cambodia: Can we achieve restorative justice?

Date: 9/4/2013
Time: 1730 – 1900

CKS Conference Hall

Wat Damnak
Siem Reap

Please Confirm attendance by 8/4/2013

Email: or call 063 964 385


In this research project, medical sociologist Leakhena Nou explores the psychosocial causes of violence in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge and today, as well as the outlook for achieving restorative justice through the application of the sociological methods of structural symbolic interactionism (SSI). Nou’s research records genocide survivors’ first-hand, experiential insights on stressors (e.g., past and present negative life events and “daily hassles”) and stress mediators (e.g., social support and positive coping strategies) that affect their psychosocial wellbeing both mentally and physically. A key focus of this work is how the five related themes of the SSI approach (symbols, definition of the situation, social roles, socialization and role-taking, and the “self”) might be similar for survivors and former perpetrators of the genocide, and how their exposure to PTSD or other traumas might be risk factors for violence in the past or present


Leakhena NOU, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Sociology at California State University, Long Beach, and the founder and director of the Applied Social Research Institute of Cambodia. As a Cambodian medical sociologist, Dr. Nou’s major research interests are the sociology of trauma; human rights, peace, and conflict studies; Cambodian American studies; and Asian/Pacific/American studies. Dr. Nou’s research centers on the epidemiology of social stress and health/illness, political sociology, and the intersection of gender studies, human rights, and international law. In her research with Cambodians in the United States and Cambodia, Dr. Nou explores how cross-cultural and cross-ethnic research can inform policy development and social science knowledge development. Nou is also conducting research on the current Khmer Rouge Tribunal and on issues of reconciliation, reparation, and healing justice.

Makes a 2 more local appearances before jetting off on a mission that takes the CSP around the world.
Catch the band this Friday night at Phnom Penh’s most loved venue, Equinox on Gold Street 282.
Then, if that ain’t enough, you can join CSP’s final show, starting late, 10pm Saturday night at La Croisette on the Riverside.

A huge year ahead – touring 3 continents, a new album, art exhibitons and a movie!

First up, CSP lands in Freemantle, Western Australia for Easter weekend shows beginning at Kulcha on Saturday 30 then 6 weeks in Australia as artists in residence at Montsalvat, Victoria. A northern hemisphere tour starts at Global in Copenhagen on may 18, then followed by a month in Europe, a quick dash back to Phnom Penh mid June and then off the Detroit USA where CSP will record it’s third album with Dennis Coffey.

Coffey is an unlikely but most exciting match for the Space Project – a legend of Motown, Funk Bros, house band. The man who put the psychedelia into Motown hits by the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, who single-handedly invented the Blacksploitation movie soundtrack with Black Belt Jones, the theme to Bruce Lee’s Enter The Dragon and who just happened to discover and producer Sixto Rodriguez whose story features in the Oscar winning Searching For Sugarman. In July, CSP will take time to record it’s third album – an experience where hard bit Detroit meets the sounds of Cambodian rock and the resulting culture clash is sure to produce some exciting results – watch this space!

Marc Eberle’s long awaited CSP film “Not Easy Rock & Roll” has been picked up by BBC4 and is set for international television release towards the end of this year.

Finally, The Cambodian Space Project will have a new website online very soon but for now, please join our facebook page for dates and updates,

or better still, catch a live show in coming up Cambodian, Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, UK, USA, Singapore and Indonesia.

All the best,
