SCHÖPF, Caroline (Ph.D Student)
Caroline M. Schöpf is a doctoral fellow of the Joint Research Group ‘Migration, China, and the Global Context’ of the Max Weber Foundation and a Phd. candidate of the Sociology Department in Hong Kong Baptist University. Bringing migration studies, critical race theory and world system approaches into a dialogue, her dissertation project compares the labor market incorporation and social integration of highly skilled White and South Asian migrants in Hong Kong. Caroline was born in socialist East Germany and moved to West Germany as a child. She holds a M.A. in Japanese and Chinese studies, has lived and worked in Asia (Hong Kong, Japan and China) for 8 years, and speaks fluent Chinese and Japanese. Her own rich migration experience sparked her interest in migration and inequality. Her work has been presented at twelve international conferences and workshops, including the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, the Canadian Sociological Association Annual Conference, and a International Sociological Association RC54 Conference. She co-authored an article published in Research on Social Work Practice.
