Brooks HallMap >

John Shepherd, U.Va. Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the east Asia Center, will speak on "The Practice of Footbinding: Neglected Evidence from the Censuses of Taiwan, 1905–1915." Prof. Shepherd's research applies his interest in historical dynamics, political economy, and conflict theories of society to issues in Chinese society at both the macro level of empire and region and at the micro level of marriage, gender, and domestic groups. He is concerned with research design, and the critical examination and testing of competing hypotheses, even those labeled as "interpretations."
