Sarah Grant is the multimedia editor for the Journal of Vietnamese Studies. Her research uses ethnographic methods to understand the human experiences of commodity agriculture, quality construction, and precarity in contemporary Vietnam. She is finishing her first book-length manuscript about commodity coffee production and culture in the Central Highlands and developing two new research projects. The first project is a multi-species and microbial ethnography of birds, fertilizer, rice, shrimp, and climate change in the Mekong Delta. The second is an ethnography of citizen science, conservation, and birdwatching communities in a transnational context. She is actively involved in developing Vietnam studies programming at CSUF, including routine study abroad programs, a Vietnamese studies speaker series, and the development of an interdisciplinary Vietnam studies certificate program.
