What does it mean to be middle class in a globalizing world? Does it mean the same thing to be middle class in New York as it does in Chongqing? Drawing off years of ethnographic research on the emergent Chinese middle class, this talk will examine (and make a case for) sociological approaches to the middle class, its emergence, and development, especially the ways that sociologists can better account for class and class structure in countries like China that are undergoing rapid development, as well as sustained processes of cultural and structural change.
