Dr. Junjia Ye, 2011-2014
Junjia Ye is now Lecturer in Human Geography at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
Junjia Ye was a postdoctoral research fellow in Urban Geography at MPI-MMG as part of the GlobaldiverCities project. She was also a visiting research fellow at the Asia Research Institute at NUS. She received her PhD in Geography at The University of British Columbia in 2011. Her research interests lie at the intersections of cultural diversity, critical cosmopolitanism, class, gender studies and the political-economic development of urban Southeast Asia. Alongside extensive ethnographic research methods, she also uses techniques of film and photography to create further visual narratives through her work. She published her first book in the Institute’s ‘Global Diversities’ book series, entitled Inequality in the global city: the division of labour and the politics of cosmopolitanism in Singapore.
