Jeong-Ran Kim

Research Associate

I am a research associate. Prior to that I was a research fellow at Kobe University, from which I obtained my doctorate in history. I have worked extensively on the history of disease and public health in pre-colonial and colonial Korea and the Japanese Empire more broadly. I am currently working on malaria in the Japanese empire as part of a Wellcome Trust Investigator’s Award, ‘Invisible crises neglected histories: Malaria in Asia, 1900-present’. From October 2021, I will start to research a new subject as part of the project 'Medicine and Conflict, c.1945-c.1980: The United Kingdom and the "Savage Wars of Peace"' which is funded by the AHRC. I will examine military medicine and public health, including United Nations’ civilian aid activities, during the Korean War (1950-53).
