Program Director

Eriberto P. “Fuji” Lozada Jr. is Professor of Anthropology and Environmental Studies at Davidson College, North Carolina, and Adjunct Professor of Anthropology at the School for Social Development and Public Policy, Fudan University in Shanghai. He is a sociocultural anthropologist who has conducted fieldwork on a variety of topics in both rural and urban China and West Africa, but his most recent work is on sustainable aquaculture in the Yangtze River Delta. Fuji has also taught and lived in Korea and Japan. He has published on a wide array of topics on contemporary issues in Chinese society and Asian-American issues, ranging from religion and politics, popular culture and globalization, sports and society issues, and the cultural impact of science and technology. When not teaching or spending time with his anthropologist wife Rebecca Ruhlen and their two children, Fuji can usually be found either on the sidelines of a men’s lacrosse field (as head coach of the Davidson College MCLA Men’s Lacrosse team) or on the field as a NCAA and high school lacrosse referee.
