Research Interests

I'm interested in the history of the socialist work unit in China from the 1950s to the early 2000s. Specifically, I study historical perceptions and memories of work unit space from socialist factories in the southwestern city of Chengdu, China. I pay attention to gender, urban vs. rural household registration, nonpermanent work status, and other axes of difference to make sense of how work unit space was at once a privileged and limited/limiting space of work and everyday life.
