Terry WoronovUniversity of Sydney

Woronov’s research focuses on social transformation in contemporary China. As an urban anthropologist, she is particularly interested in how China’s rapidly-changing cities produce new opportunities for – and new constraints and limitations on – the nation’s children and youth. She is currently working on a book manuscript that explores the question of class transformation in China’s post-socialist, post-industrial cities, and how gender and generation inflect class consciousness and class transformations.
