Dr. Juan Zhang

Dr. Juan Zhang is Senior Lecturer in Social Anthropology at the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, UoB.

Prior to Bristol, Juan held research and teaching positions at the University of Queensland (Australia), University of New England (Australia), and the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore (NUS).

Juan’s research explores borders and transnational mobilities in various forms – from memories and livelihoods at the margins of China and Vietnam, to the global flows of labour and capital in and out of Asian casino spaces; from transnational marriages and family life to Asian migrant im/mobilities under differentiated pandemic governance. 

Broadly speaking, Juan’s research engages with three main themes: Asian Borderlands, Migrant Im/mobilities & Transnationalism, Transnational Cultural Politics & China.
