  • About

    I am a political historian of modern East Asia, with a focus on China and Taiwan from the early to mid-twentieth century. My work draws on the transnational histories of nationalism, eugenics, and the body with theoretical investments in post-colonialism, queer theory, and childhood studies. My dissertation examines the relationship between Kuomintang (Nationalist Party) efforts to promote women's and children's hygiene and the political integration of the Chinese mainland from the 1920s to the 1950s.
