Thesis: 'Intimate Relationships of Queer Chinese Women Migrants in the UK'

Supervisor: Man-Yee Kan and Heather Hamill

Scarlett is a DPhil candidate at Oxford’s Department of Sociology. Her doctoral research is a qualitative study examining intimate relationships of queer Chinese women migrants who were born under China’s one-child policy and are currently living in the UK. The research examines topics, like gender and sexuality, intimacy, queer migration, intergenerational relationship, (unconventional) family formation, and mental health. Her personal research interests include film studies, cultural production and representation, and body politics. 

Scarlett teaches Sociological Theory paper to students in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) and Human Sciences degree at Oxford and seminars on gender, sexuality, and media at SOAS University of London.

Believing the importance of public sociology, Scarlett also works with organisations, NGOs, government departments, including Migration Museum UK, South Cambridgeshire District Council, KPMG, Queer China UK, QTI Coalition of Colour, etc., and host seminars and workshops on subjects related to gender, sexuality, queer migration, feminism, and discrimination laws in the UK. Scarlett was also the co-director of Queer Asia Film Festival (2022).
