Heidi Fung is Research Fellow/Professor at the Institute of Ethnology, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. She received her doctoral degree from the Committee on Human Development at the University of Chicago. She has taught in the Department of Psychology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and has been a visiting scholar at the Harvard-Yenching Institute and the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University. As a developmental and cultural psychologist by training, Dr. Fung has long been interested in how to situate life‐span human development in socio‐cultural contexts. Her research involves the socialization of emotion, daily disciplinary and moral training practices, childrearing beliefs across cultures, and narrative practices at home. More recently, she has extended her interest to the life stories of Vietnamese marriage migrants in Taiwan and how they socialize their children born to Taiwanese men.
