Please Introduce Yourself
Associate Professor of Anthropology & Women's and Gender Studies. (Brandeis) My specific research is on Japan, but I'm broadly interested in ideology, embodiment, commodity culture and memories of war & trauma throughout East Asia and the Pacific.
, Assistant Prof. of Anthropology and Director of the Program in Cultural Production (Brandeis). I'm an Africanist, with general interests in the cultural and ideological dimensions of globalization.
, Master student of Anthropology at Brandeis University. I'm interested in the expressions of Confucian values and rituals among popular culture in contemporary China. Currently I'm also have a broad interest in political anthropology(ideology and social transformation) and museum study.
, fourth year PhD student in Anthropology at Brandeis University. My dissertation research is exploring the individual experiences of volunteers in grassroots Chinese gay men's health groups and the wider cultural and political implications of such organizations. I have spent two summers performing preliminary fieldwork with one gay men's group in Xi'an, and plan to start my main fieldwork in 2010. My theoretical interests include sexuality and gender, globalization and modernity, power, practice, and agency, civil society, social movements, and NGOs.
