My research topic is about disabled people’s employment experience in the territories of China. I found it fascinating to see how disabled people’s employment are different in terms of their residence areas. For example, a disabled person who lives in a urban city in the east coast may experience significantly differently from a disabled person who lives in a rural cottage in the west mountains. This social-economic and potentially ideological difference makes China an interesting country to be investigated in terms of disability issues, and other social-political topics.


My research will be drawn on the works done by disability scholars in the past three decades, namely the medical/individual model of disability, social model of disability, critical disability studies, etc. I will also explore the ancient and current philosophical underpin of Chinese people and look into how Chinese citizens regard disability.
