Jun (Philip) Fang is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Colby College. He received his Ph.D. in sociology from Northwestern University. As a cultural sociologist studying China’s engagement with the West, he broadly addresses how contrasting forces of nationalism and globalization shape processes of creative production. His book project, When China Meets Hollywood, is an ethnography of how Chinese and Hollywood studios coproduce global movies, exploring the interplay of culture, markets, and politics. His research has been published in Poetics and Qualitative Sociology, among other journals, and is forthcoming in the American Sociological Review. He has won fellowships from the Mellon Foundation/American Council of Learned Societies and other organizations. A former columnist, he wrote on culture and education for various media outlets.
