Associate Professor Fran Martin is a Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies at the University of Melbourne and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. She is currently completing a five-year ethnographic study of Chinese university students’ social and subjective experiences of studying in Australia with a focus on the gendered aspects of their educational ventures. Prior to her current work on international student mobility, her best-known research focused on transnational Chinese youth and media cultures. She has published widely on television, film, literature, Internet culture and other forms of cultural production in the contemporary transnational Chinese cultural sphere, with a specialisation in representations and cultures of gender and sexuality. Her next book, under contract to Duke University Press, is entitled Dreams of Flight: Mobility and Gendered Subjectivity Among China’s Student Transmigrants.
