Shunan You

Sociology PhD Candidate

Shunan joined the Sociology PhD program in Fall 2018. She is interested in highly mobile professions and how gender and social networks shape the mobility of these global nomadic workers. She aims to unpack how this group of professions changes organizational management, complicating family life, dissolving traditional community and cultivating individualism. Prior to joining Northeastern, she got her MA in sociology of education from University College London, Institute of Education, where she researched experiences of being Chinese women academics, and a BA in English literature from Beijing Language and Culture University.
