Chengzuo Tang

My research interests are encompassed by the twofold lines of reflection with primary attention to the economic transformation, political development, and social change interactively occurred to China. On the one hand, while quantitative oriented, I pursue the most meaningful methodological foundation and design customized for informative research practice on a case-by-case basis. On the other hand, though nurtured in sociology, I seek for the potential scholarly introspection and advance at the intersection of various social sciences subfields beyond the boundary of single discipline. Given the existing features, however, I always expect to make more progress during the graduate studies.

Before joining in Duke sociology as a Ph.D. student in 2019, I earned my M.A. in social sciences at University of Chicago in 2017, and L.L.B. in sociology at Renmin University of China in 2016. Beyond social sciences inquiry, the literature writing, historical studies, and philosophy work have all influenced me a lot.
