Professor Davis's primary teaching and research interests are historical and comparative sociology, inequality and stratification, and contemporary Chinese society. She is a member of the national Committee on U.S. China relations and has just completed a six year term chairing of the social science and humanities panel of the Hong Kong government Research Committee. This past July Professor Davis organized a workshop at Hong Kong University as part of a larger project on post-socialist marriage and sexuality. We talk with her about the changing trends of marriage and divorce in China.
