Teaching and Supervisions

Teaching: 
MPhil course coordinator for Paper 320: Concepts and Lineages of the Developmental State in China, East Asia, and Beyond.
I'm particularly interested in supervising PhD students who work on some aspect or aspects of of land, labour, or law (broadly construed), and their relationships to the construction, reconfiguration, or contestation of state power. My own work focuses on Greater China and Southeast Asia, but I'm also open to working with specialists on other regions. I strongly value fieldwork and first-hand data collection, as well as careful theory-building, and expect students to be committed to crafting research that can 'walk on two legs' (making novel contributions of both theory and data).
