Joshua's research interests include the political, intellectual, and cultural history of early twentieth-century China. More specifically, his research explores the ways in which volatile sociopolitical conditions and the proliferation of periodicals in the Republican period (1912-1949) shaped normative conceptions of gender, sexuality, and childhood. Through analyses of print media, educational texts, and government policy, his current project examines the relationship between the sexual socialization of children and Guomindang nation-building efforts during the Nanjing Decade (1928-1937).
Joshua currently serves as coordinator of the Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop in Chinese Studies and as graduate liaison to the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies.
