The Reconfiguration of Whiteness in China: Privileges, Precariousness, and Racialized Performances

Project description

The privilege of being a white immigrant in China

The rapid expansion of the Chinese economy attracted considerable numbers of white immigrants. White immigrants live in an environment conditioned by the Chinese law, economy and social rules. The EU-funded CHINAWHITE project will conduct research on white migrants in relation to state policy, English language teaching (ESL), the entertainment sector, and the transnational business and inter-ethnic romance. It will also study whether whiteness ensures a privileged treatment in comparison to black or other migrants and determine the impact of whiteness in everyday life.
