Xinyu Guan

Overview

Xinyu Guan is a PhD student in sociocultural anthropology. His research focuses on the entanglements of race, sexuality and urban space in Singapore, especially with regard to the neoliberal transformation of ethnically-marked neighborhoods in the old city center into "creative" districts, as well as the transnational world-making practices of fellow queer subjects that destabilize identity categories in the city-state and beyond.

Xinyu has a BA in Comparative Literature from Columbia University and an MSc in Urban Studies from University College London.
