As our team's research continues on examining untold stories in the intercultural communications (IC) research or praxis narrative, this forthcoming 2020 chapter further follows and builds on a Bourdieuan "sociology of science" (proposed in Kulich & Zhang, 2012) and Foucauldian genealogical approach.

My masters thesis will be an investigation into variance of "indigenous" psychological constructs for happiness, or Subjective Well-being, across China.

Indigenous approaches which do not take this dialogue into account will ultimately misrepresent the 'Chinese' perspective on any issue--particularly one as fundamental as conceptions of happiness. My goal is to find a way to assess the changing perspective on happiness in coastal vs central regions, urban vs rural, young vs old, rich vs poor, in China. Hybrid perspectives on happiness were already being recognized in the first decade of the 2000s; I hope to discover the extent and loci of change by sampling various populations around China.
