Dr. Newendorp received a B.A. in East Asian Studies from Columbia University, an M.A. from Harvard University’s Regional Studies-East Asia Program, and a Ph.D. from Harvard University’s Department of Anthropology.
She was awarded the 2009 Francis L.K. Hsu Book Prize by the American Association of Anthropology’s Society for East Asian Anthropology for her ethnography of Chinese cross-border marriage migration in contemporary Hong Kong: Uneasy Reunions: Immigration, Citizenship, and Family Life in Post 1997 Hong Kong (Stanford University Press, 2008). She has also published articles about her Hong Kong-based research in International Migration and PoLAR: The Political and Legal Anthropology Review.
Her current research project focuses on the migration of Chinese-born seniors to the U.S. and explores how these individuals make sense of relocating to the U.S. following their retirement in China, along with how seniors’ memories and subjective experiences of movement within and beyond China over past decades may continue to influence their migration trajectories in the 21st century.
