Jun Zhang

Jun Zhang was trained as a lawyer at the Sun Yat-sen University in the city of Guangzhou, China, and passed the national bar examination. With a “desirable” future of being a lawyer in a booming economy, Jun was directed by some mysterious force to the unknown land of anthropology, a journey that she never regretted to get on. Thank to anthropology, she takes on a new look on the familiar, often take-for-granted phenomena around her. Jun has diverse interests, ranging from consumer cultures to political economy. Although she never drives in everyday life – she does have a driver’s license in China, she wrote her doctoral dissertation on automobiles in China.  She looks into the ideology and practices of urban marriage, while keeps her eyes on political culture, urban transformation in Chinese cities.
