Graduate student researches Chinese political economy
Posted: November 29, 2012
Graduate student Christian Sorace has been awarded a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Research Fellowship through August 2013. Sorace is conducting reasearch in Sichuan, China.
Sorace is investigating how during the aftermath of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, the Chinese state's reconstruction plan impacted and shaped grassroots politics. By focusing on varieties of disaster reconstruction political economy, his dissertation hopes to shed light on the regime’s vision for developing the countryside, rural politics, and state-society relations in China more broadly.
