The WONK Zone*

Welcome to the WONK zone! This is hopefully going to be an exploratory section that I will be using to write shorter pieces on the more technical aspects of my research as I go. A couple of aspects of doing independent research that have been endlessly frustrating are: 1) the lack of feedback in the process and 2) the feeling that even if I was to publish something, that a handful of people with degrees with read it and it will never reach a wider public. This is a stab at helping ease these frustrations! Expect a descriptive post in the near future containing information about the domestic worker industry globally and in China.

*You might be asking yourself, what is a WONK? Merriam-Webster defines a WONK as “a person preoccupied with arcane details or procedures in a specialized field broadly.” Me to a tee!
