What They Don't Teach You About Doing Business in China in Business School


Wednesday, September 26 from 9:00am to 10:30am/confucius-institute/events.pcf Image

 Browning Hall Auditorium (ISB 160)

Presented by Dr. Elanah Uretsky, moderated by Dr. Elsa Fan.

Includes a reception after the talk.

Dr. Elanah Uretsky is an Assistant Professor of Global Health, Anthropology, and International Affairs at Brandeis University. Her research interests include medical anthropology, HIV/AIDS, gender roles and disease transmission.

Dr. Uretsky is particularly interested in the social context of sexually-transmitted diseases. Her work highlights the interaction of governance and HIV/AIDS in China and raises awareness of the pivotal role that men, especially "mobile men with money," play in the spread of the epidemic. In her first book, “Occupational Hazards: Sex, Business, and HIV in Post-Mao China” (Stanford University Press, 2016), she examines how the networking practices that hold together Chinese social fabric and have led to the China's economic rise facilitated the development, transmission, and administration of China's HIV epidemic. More recently, she has expanded her focus to the role of migration in the spread of the epidemic in the region.

Dr. Elsa Fan is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Webster University
