Fang Lizhi (1936-2012) was an astrophysicist and political dissident. Early on, the Chinese Communist Party considered him a valuable asset because of his scientific training and therefore allowed him to continue his work in physics. However, during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s he was assigned to a rural reeducation camp in Anhui province. Following his experience there, he shifted the focus of his career toward theoretical astrophysics and published a controversial paper that, among other things, accepted the Big Bang Theory and was thus deemed antirevolutionary for rejecting Friedrich Engels’ notion of the universe as limitless.During the 1980s, Fang was active in the political and economic reform movement and was involved in the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. Fearing arrest, he and his family sought asylum in the United States Embassy, where Fang and his wife ended up...

She is focusing on how the geopolitics of diplomatic “friendship” and transnational capital flows between China and South Africa are localized in the everyday encounters and friendships between Chinese migrants, South Africans, and African migrants in South Africa.
