Short Biography:

Gonçalo D. SANTOS is a Joint Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology and the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences. Prior to joining the University of Hong Kong in 2013, he was 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).

Dr. Santos has conducted extensive ethnographic field research in China since the late 1990s. His work on contemporary China explores new approaches to questions of modernity, subjectivity, and social and technological transformation. His research has featured in leading journals such as Current Anthropology, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, Modern Asian Studies, Journal of Family History, and Technology and Culture (forthcoming). He is the co-editor of Chinese Kinship (Routledge, 2009) and Transforming Patriarchy (U of Washington Press, 2017). He is also the co-editor of “Love, Marriage, and Intimate Citizenship in contemporary China and India” (Modern Asian Studies, 2016). He has recently completed a monograph – entitled Intimate Modernities. Reassembling Love, Marriage, and Family Life in Rural South China 1970s-2010s – under contract with the University of Washington Press that focuses on the remaking of family and community lives in times of changing infrastructures of everyday life. It will be the first ethnography of a South Chinese rural community based on two decades of longitudinal research. His first monograph - entitled The Anthropological School of Coimbra 1885-1950 (Imprensa de Ciências Sociais, 2005) - revisited the history of anthropology and racial science in Western Europe, reflecting his interdisciplinary training in socio-cultural anthropology and science and technology studies.

Dr. Santos’ research has received grants and awards from the American Council of Learned Societies, British Academy, Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, Hong Kong Research Grants Council, Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, among other organizations.
