We Minds hope to keep this site active with fresh ideas and new perspectives. From time to time, we therefore invite anthropologists to join us for a spell as guest bloggers. To that end, please welcome our latest guest blogger, Fuji Lozada.
Eriberto P. “Fuji” Lozada Jr. is Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of Asian Studies at Davidson College, North Carolina, USA and Adjunct Professor of Anthropology at the School for Social Development and Public Policy, Fudan University in Shanghai. He is a sociocultural anthropologist who has conducted fieldwork in both rural and urban China, but his most recent work has been located in Shanghai. Fuji has also taught and lived in Korea and Japan. He has published on a wide array of topics on contemporary issues in Chinese society and Asian-American issues, ranging from religion and politics, popular culture and globalization, sports and society issues, and the cultural impact of science and technology. When not teaching or spending time with his anthropologist wife Rebecca Ruhlen and their two children, Fuji can usually be found either on the sidelines of a men’s lacrosse field (as head coach of the Davidson College Men’s Lacrosse team of the MCLA) or on the field as a NCAA and high school lacrosse referee.
