Dr. Hairong Yan
Department of Applied Social Science
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Based at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, YAN Hairong’s intellectual interests include labor, gender, rurality, rural-urban relations, and collective and cooperative rural economy. Her earlier research focused on rural-to-urban migrant domestic workers in urban China. She thus examined the transformation in rural-urban relations, gender relations and class relations in China’s reform process. She is the author of New Masters, New Servants: Migration, Development, and Women Workers in China (Duke University Press, 2008. In recent years, she has become concerned with food security, food sovereignty and agrarian change in China. She is on International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems (IPES) and contributes to the food sovereignty network in China.
Chinese government’s policy towards de-peasantization began in the early years of the rural reform. In recent years, cooperatives, family farms and dragon-head enterprises are emerging as new subjects of agriculture in China and are being promoted by the Chinese government as engines of agricultural development. Based on national level data and case studies, I will examine the characteristics of agrarian dynamics in China and how they undermine food security. I will also discuss the recent “rural revitalization” strategy proposed by the Chinese central government. From a food sovereignty perspective, this talk will also share contending discourses and alternative practices in China.
