Jun (Philip) Fang is a visiting 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, titled When China Meets Hollywood: Global Collaboration and State Intervention in a Creative Industry, is an ethnography of how Chinese and Hollywood studios co-produce films, exploring the interplay of culture, markets, and politics. His research has been published in Poetics and Qualitative Sociology, among other journals, and has won fellowships from the Mellon Foundation/American Council of Learned Societies. Previously, he taught at the College of William & Mary and wrote columns for the China editions of The New York Times and Bloomberg Businessweek.
