LWP Fellow

Jia Wenjuan

Jia Wenjuan is a Ph.D. Candidate at Sun Yat-sen University. Her major is Sociology, specializing in labor research and organization research. She has investigated the power of foremen in the private garment industry and the contract system in the Chinese construction industry. Her current doctoral dissertation focuses on the change of the power regime in the workplace from a Chinese state-socialism period to a market-socialism period. Through a historical comparative perspective, she will research how workers’ protest during the production process in a SOE is shaped by the contradiction between the Chinese official ideology and discourse and market-economy practice. This research will argue workers’ continual protest against managers and compromise with managers in the workplace isn’t capable only of changing a power regime but also reproducing one.
