Junjie Chen, from China, is a doctoral student in Anthropology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has three degrees in Sociology from Beijing University and is the author of a book and over twenty publications on China’s demography and population issues. He has received numerous fellowships and research grants as well as several awards for Best Thesis and Outstanding Graduate Student awards. He has presented papers on his research at many national conferences in the U.S. and in China. His current research is on the effects of China’s birth control policy at the village level and he will be in China during the next academic year doing fieldwork. As a male feminist anthropologist, Junjie hopes his work will contribute to broad popular awareness of, and measures to ameliorate and improve, the daily lives of peasants, especially women’s reproductive experiences.   In 2002, Mr. Chen was a co-recipient of the Goodman award. This is his second year of support. Please see his bio below for more information.
