Modern Chinese social and cultural history; history of medicine and public health in China; gender history. My dissertation, "Down to the Roots: Teeth, Dentistry, and Dental Hygiene in Modern China, " traces the historical development of dentistry in twentieth-century China from four dimensions — the institutionalization of Western dental science and dental education, state promotion of dental hygiene under both the Nationalist and Communist governments, the cultural perceptions of teeth in relation to the body, and the commercialization of everyday dental supplies. As the very first historical study of dentistry and dental hygiene in modern China, my research attempts to reconstruct a complex nexus of practices where hygienic modernity, nation-state building, social and consumer culture intersected and also reinforced each other.
