1. In this talk, I examine migrant experiences and coping strategies in Kawakami, a Japanese village located in Northeastern Japan. By providing voices of Chinese peasant workers who are normally both invisible and inaudible, I aim to explore the aspirations of the workers and their interpretations of their overseas experience in Kawakami. I draw primarily on ethnographic fieldwork conducted in Kawakami from early July 2012 to late November 2012.

2. In this talk, I will introduce my paper that discusses a newly emergent intimate relationship between Chinese women and Nigerian men in contemporary China. The main part will focus on the cultivation of an Africanized love, habitus and morality, which substantially create a feeling of ‘diaspora at home’ for the Chinese. This research is based on an anthropological fieldwork in Guangzhou, China (from September 2012 to September 2013) and in Lagos, Nigeria (from December 2013 to January 2014).
