Having grown up in southeast China and educated in Beijing, I was most influenced by the tense debates in 1980s China. I became interested in ethnographic research because of its attention to complexities that cannot be foreseen beforehand and I have always sought to integrate ethnographic data into historical, institutional and especially political economy analysis.
