Judith Audin

Judith Audin holds a PhD in political science from the Centre d’Études et de Recherches Internationales (CERI – Centre for International Studies and Research) at Sciences Po Paris, for which she defended her thesis – on the configurations of local power in contrasting neighbourhoods of Beijing in 21st‑century China – in 2013. She subsequently obtained a postdoctoral research post at the CECMC (Centre d’Études sur la Chine Moderne et Contemporaine – Centre for Studies on Modern and Contemporary China) within EHESS (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales – School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences) in Paris, where she developed a sociology of para‑administrative work in urban neighbourhoods by examining the case of residents’ committees. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the CHERPA laboratory (Croyances, Histoire, Espace, Régulation, Politique et Administration – Beliefs, History, Space, Regulation, Politics and Administration) at Sciences Po Aix, where she is conducting research for the European MEDIUM project, which focuses on urban dynamics in medium-sized cities in China (in particular Datong, Hangzhou and Zhuhai). Her latest project concerns abandoned places and urban ruins in the People’s Republic of China.
