Kevin W. Fogg is the Associate Director of the Carolina Asia Center at UNC-Chapel Hill. Working under the direction of the Director and the Advisory Committee, and alongside the fantastic CAC team, he leads the center’s work on events, outreach, and grant-funded projects. He also teaches occasionally in the UNC Department of History.

Dr. Fogg came to UNC from Oxford, where he taught in the Faculty of History, Brasenose College, and the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. He did his undergraduate degree at a well-known university in the Triangle that has a different shade of blue, and he completed his master’s and doctoral studies at Yale. He is a historian of Southeast Asia, specializing in Islamic societies and post-colonial Indonesia. In addition to a smattering of articles and book chapters, his first monograph, Indonesia’s Islamic Revolution, was published by Cambridge University Press, and he co-translated into English a collection of short stories by Indonesian author A.A. Navis that has been published by Lontar.

When not engaged in academic work or Carolina Asia Center business, Kevin watches college basketball and misses good Minangkabau food.
