My name is Séagh Kehoe, and I am currently working on my PhD in Contemporary Chinese Studies at the School of Politics and International Relations, University of Nottingham.
My interest in China began after a fairly impromptu decision to move to Guangdong Province to teach English in 2006. After five years, I returned to Ireland to pursue a BA (Hons.) in Sociology and Chinese Studies. I later completed a MA in East Asian Politics at Leiden University.
I studied Mandarin at Sichuan University, Guangxi University, and an underground house church in Nanning City, China, and Tibetan at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Nepal.
My research interests include ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in Contemporary China.
