This book is an anthology of texts and images contributed by the participants in 'FIELDS: An Itinerant Inquiry Across the Kingdom of Cambodia', a roving residency in Cambodia in December 2013, curated by Vera Mey and Erin Gleeson. Participants of the three-week FIELDS journey included artists, curators, educators, and researchers.

Most of this book was originally written in English, and has been translated and published  as two separate volumes, in Khmer and in English. The present version is in English, while the Khmer version is also available in the library with the same location code.
