Project Title: The New Merchants of Canton: African Migrants in Guangzhou, China
Project Description: My doctoral research examines the importance of social networks among African migrants in Guangzhou, China’s biggest manufacturing centre in the southern coast. I look at how these Africans sustain their large-scale, long-distance migration by navigating in various aspects of their lives in China: business, religious activities, legal aspects (visas), and cyber space.
