Ken Guest is a professor of anthropology at Baruch College, CUNY, and the author of Cultural Anthropology: A Toolkit for a Global Age, Essentials of Cultural Anthropology: A Toolkit for a Global Age, Cultural Anthropology Fieldwork Journal, Cultural Anthropology: A Reader for a Global Age, and God in Chinatown: Religion and Survival in New York’s Evolving Religious Community, among many other scholarly and popular publications. His study has been published in The New York Times, National Public Radio, the BBC, and other media outlets, and focuses on immigration, religion, globalization, ethnicity, entrepreneurship, China, and New York’s Chinatown.
Professor Guest’s research in China and the United States follows the adventures of new Chinese immigrants from Fuzhou, southeast China, who have rejuvenated New York’s Chinatown, enticed by jobs in the restaurant, construction, and garment businesses and aided by a huge people smuggling network. His writings look at the role of Fuzhounese religious communities in China and the United States, as well as the religious revival that is sweeping China’s coastal regions, the Fuzhounese role in the rapidly expanding U.S. network of all-you-can-eat buffets and take-out restaurants, and the Fuzhounese second generation’s higher education experiences.
