How To... is a series intended to assist junior scholars dealing with the many issues that arise in the course of completing degrees and entering both academic and non-academic job markets. We draw on our own experiences or those of fellow scholars or practitioners to collaboratively produce tips for generalized situations.
How To...Do Research In Political Crisis
This piece on How to…Do Research In Political Crisis is developed from an interview with a young female researcher doing work in the People’s Republic of China. She is not a citizen of the PRC, but she is a person of East Asian descent. The crises she faced included occasional crackdowns on academics, censorship on social media, and detainment concerns due to unforeseen conflicts in the local community. The interview has been anonymized for their protection, and all answers were developed from notes taken during the interview rather than direct quotation.
