Short Biography:

Gonçalo D. Santos joined the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences in October 2013. He was previously an LSE Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science (2007-2011) and a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle/Saale (2011-2013). He is the author of many journal article publications on contemporary China, and is the co-editor of Chinese Kinship. Contemporary Anthropological Perspectives (Routledge, 2009) and Transforming Patriarchy. Chinese Families in the 21st Century (University of Washington Press, 2017). He is also the guest co-editor of a special issue of the journal Modern Asian Studies focusing on “Love, Marriage, and Intimate Citizenship in China and India” (July 2016). He is currently completing a monograph on love, everyday ethics, and social transformation in contemporary South China. His first monograph - entitled The Anthropological School of Coimbra 1885-1950 (Imprensa de Ciências Sociais, 2005) - revisits the history of osteological collections and racial categories in Western Europe and reflects his interdisciplinary training in socio-cultural anthropology and science and technology studies.
