I just learned that Pun Ngai, anthropologist and founder of the Chinese 
Working Women Network (nvgong guanhuai), was interviewed on NPR back in 
September. You can listen to the interview here:


Pun Ngai *may* be presenting a paper on corporate "codes of conduct" at the 
an upcoming anthropology conference (due to a labor struggle in SF, the 
time & place of the conference is under debate). Contact me if you want to 
see the paper, which theorizes the codes as a new form of capitalist 
governmentality; it will also be published in an upcoming China Journal. 
Her first English book, _Made in China: Subject, Power, & Resistance of 
Women Workers in a Global Workplace_, will be published by Duke in January.
