Anna’s recent work has focused on experiences of pollution in rural China, particularly on the various forms of activism and resignation which emerge among affected communities. She is currently engaged in three projects: a study of the rise of rural-urban coalitions opposing waste incineration in China; a social scientific investigation of the processing and flows of electronic waste between China and Japan; and experiences of urbanisation and resettlement in rural China.
