Project Ethnic Potential: The Constitution of Minority Identities in Post-Classification China, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

In China of the 1950s, ethnologists, linguists, and Communist authorities undertook a bureaucratic-cum-social scientific project known as the “Ethnic Classification.” Here it was determined which among China’s hundreds of ethnic minority communities would and would not be officially recognized by the state. Such was the subject of his first book, Coming to Terms with the Nation: Ethnic Classification in Modern China (UC Press, 2011).

Project QWERTY is Dead: A History of the Chinese Computer

Principal Investigator:

As the first-ever history of Chinese computing in the 20th and 21st centuries, QWERTY is Dead will explore the circuitous pathways and eccentric personalities of this unknown chapter in the history of global information technology. Drawing upon extensive oral histories, material artifacts, and archives from Asia, Europe, and the United States, the book charts out the pursuit of Chinese computing from its inception in the early Cold War period; its pathway through a network of American academic and military outfits that included MIT, the CIA, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S.

Project Developing an Urban Refugee Integartion Scale, Refuge Point (2013 - Present)

Principal Investigator:

Refugees, traditionally confined to large camps, are increasingly dispersing into large urban centers in search of autonomy and better lives. As the urban refugee community grows, the often-neglected durable solution of local integration as a viable option for these refugees has re-emerged. But measuring local integration as a goal and/or proxy for stability and improved welfare has remained understudied. This project developed a scale to measure integration of urban refugees in Nairobi, Kenya among the local host population.

Project Ancient Tragedies/Modern Stages, Stanford University/Ecole normale superieure/Paul Valery in Montpellier

Principal Investigator:

Professor Eleni Papalexiou at the University of the Peloponnese and I are collaborating to develop a summer institute in the Argolid, "Ancient Tragedies/Modern Stages," exploring contemporary approaches to staging Greek tragedy. A combination of workshops, lectures, classes, and performances will provide participants with an up-to-date understanding of how our oldest theatrical form, Greek tragedy, continues to challenge contemporary theater artists and audiences in the 21st century.
