Erle C. Ellis: Pictures: China

 
China 1990-1991

1990-1991

From August 1990 to August 1991, I lived in Nanjing, China, serving as an English teacher at Nanjing Agricultural University.  During that period, I took pictures of the university, Nanjing and the surrounding areas, started the first pizza restaurant in Nanjing with help from friends, and traveled extensively across China.

1993-1996

From 1993 to 1996, I conducted postdoctoral research at two villages in Jiangsu, China.  I had an apartment in Beijing, at Beijing Agricultural University (now China Agricultural University), hosted by my advisor for the project, Prof. Cheng Xu.  However, I spent most of my time near Wuxi, Jiangsu, where most pictures of this set were taken, mostly in Xiejia Village of Wujin County or Zhangqing Village of Wuxi County. 
 

2000-2005

From 2000 to 2005, I was the principal investigator of a collaborative research project investigating long-term ecological changes across China's densely populated village landscapes.  Conducted in the field at five sites across China, there was a huge amount of travel, and many collaborative training efforts at field sites and elsewhere..
