Peer reviewed analysis from world leading experts

Andrew Kipnis



I am currently working on two projects. The first is called "Regimes of Suzhi: Discipline, Governance and Social Reproduction in Contemporary China." In this project I examine education reform as a lens onto broad processes of governing and social and cultural change. The second project is in the planning stages and involves a comparative study of urban citizenship in different types of rapidly urbanizing areas in China. Finally, I have just completed a book on the implications for anthropological theory of issues that arise in the governing of socialist states.
