"While studying Economics many ages ago a Professor once introduced his first lecture by saying: 'This course is about why some countries are rich and others poor. The only way we can understand that is to talk about how things can be quantified by money. Do not bring culture into this classroom. If you want to talk about culture, the anthropology department is across campus.' I discovered it was a long road full of twists and turns, but eventually I made the journey across 'campus'."
"My MPhil project is on public dance (guangchangwu) in mainland China and I did my fieldwork in Henan Province in 2013. Through the lens of this grassroots dancing activity, I tried to touch some main anthropological themes including the transformation of space, disciplined body, and the dynamics behind social solidarity."
"I think studying anthropology gives us the precise chance to break away with a single life--by reading and studying other cultures and peoples, we are able to realize the relativity of our own lives and a further understanding of humanity is reached only after this reflection."
