The growth of the Greater Bay Area in South China is still heavily reliant on the access to cheap labor. This seminar examines the role of labor brokers in shaping rural-urban labor migration in China.

Julia Chuang’s presentation is based on her book Beneath the China Boom: Labor, Citizenship, and the Making of a Rural Land Market (University of California Press 2020). Xinrong Ma will give the talk “Runaway Nora” : Liangshan Yi women workers in co-ethnic brokerage system, on gender and ethnic Yi labor brokerage.
