Angran Li is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at NYU Shanghai. Before joining NYU Shanghai, he was an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Zhejiang University. Broadly defined, Angran’s research examines mechanisms through which social, spatial, and temporal contexts, independently or jointly, lead to the inequality of parental practices and educational outcomes. He explores how those relationships affect intergenerational transmission of advantages/disadvantages across social groups and national contexts from a comparative perspective. His research has been published in the Social Forces, Sociology of Education, Social Science Research, Chinese Sociological Review, and other journals.
