|Excerpts from publications||(fragment)
The Eugenics Law applied in the Chinese Gansu Province [which has] a high rate of mental retardation, stems from an endemic syndrome of iodine deficiency, the custom of village inbreeding and inability of bringing in healthy brides from other areas. This lead to 10 million people with learnng disabilities and another 10 million people disabled from birth. The law meant to correct this situation, the so-called Eugenics Law led to sterilization without the subject's consent
It is intellectually intriguing and morally compelling for me as a transnational Chinese woman, to resurrect the voices of thee subaltern women down at the bottom in order to make possigle their legal representation in the process of statute revision.
|Case study for the summer course||—|
|Statement of interest||The objectives and rationale of the course "Cultural Diversities East and West" caught my eyes. I believe it would broaden my horizon of the relationship between ethnicity and development in the poscommunist era and provide me a much extensive comparative view for my upcoming book project called "Better Life or Another Life — Eugenics and Bioethics in China".
This summer course at CEU would not only help push the theoretical horizon, but also enhance my teaching in terms of diveristy in subject matters and student participation.
|Plans for the future||Plans to teach a course on Globalization and Ethnicity, and another on the History of Eugenics.|
