Nicole Elizabeth Barnes
Assistant Professor in the Program of Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies
I research public health and medicine in twentieth-century China from a gendered perspective, incorporating the changing life stories of men and women into my analysis of how health regulations and medical practices reflect Chinese society's principal values as well as the assumptions and political goals of state actors.
