Profile
Dr. Yingchun Ji is the Eastern Scholar Professor at the School of Sociology and Political Science at the Shanghai University. As a family sociologist and social demographer, Dr. Ji obtained her Ph.D. in the sociology department at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Her interests include family sociology, social demography, gender, health studies, quantitative and mixed methods. She has published in journals of multiple disciplines, including sociology, family studies, population studies, and health studies. Much of her research is dedicated to family and gender issues in the Asian institutional and cultural context. Through empirical studies, she further seeks to conceptualize and theorize family and gender dynamics in transitional society such as China. For example, she has developed a modern-traditional mosaic theoretical framework to understand the so-called “leftover” women issue in China in Journal of Marriage and Family in 2015. One of her ultimate goals is to integrate literature in gender, family, and health studies, for example, applying gender perspectives and family theories to health research. Her current research projects include research on reinstitutionization of marriage n in China, gender dynamics in transitional China, and China's recent two-child family policy.
