I am a sociologist curious about the connections between economic development and the worlds of gender, race, and work. My research examines the various  consequences of macro level social changes like development, globalization, immigration, and state policies. As a teacher-scholar at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, I get to work with a fantastic set of students who bring their own life experiences into the classroom. I am also the descendent of several generations of migrants, with a family history that spans the Asia-Pacific region and Europe.  


Currently Teaching 

Dr. Fraser will be on sabbatical for the 2024-2025 academic year. Please look for Fall 2025 classes via the SFA schedule starting late spring of 2025.


My research on garment workers in Bangladesh is expanding to include women as labor migrants. I am excited to share that I have been awarded a Fulbright scholarship to spend ten months in Mauritius, an island in the Indian Ocean, to work on a project that aims to understand the lives of women labor migrants from Bangladesh. These women traveled to Mauritius for work in various industries, but are predominantly in the garment industry in Port Louis. As a Fulbright Scholar, I am eager to delve deeper into this topic and shed light on the experiences of these women.
