“Medical Authority, Body Conformity, and Intersex Livelihood in Cold War South Korea”
Todd A. Henry
University of California San Diego
Thursday, April 29, 2021
Todd Henry is a specialist of modern Korea with a focus on the period of Japanese rule and its postcolonial afterlives. A social and cultural historian interested in global forces that (re)produce lived spaces, he also studies cross-border processes linking South Korea, North Korea, Japan, and the US in the creation of “Hot War” militarisms, the transpacific practice of medical sciences, and the embodied experiences of hetero-patriarchal capitalism.
