Haejoo Kim is a doctoral candidate in English. Her research focuses on “alternative” practices of health and wellness in nineteenth-century Britain, such as vegetarianism, hydropathy, and anti-vaccinationism. Her dissertation, “Organic Victorians: Alternative Health Practices and Medical Liberty in Nineteenth-Century Britain,” explores the centrality of such marginalized health practices to the historical formulation of liberal moral agency. Her project reflects her larger research interests in nineteenth-century British literature and culture, health humanities, history of medicine, disability studies, and food studies. Her book chapter “From Happy Individuals to Universal Sisterhood: Affective Reforms in All sorts and Conditions of Men and Children of Gibeon” came out in 2019 from Liverpool University Press. She is also a recipient of the 2020 Curran Fellowship offered by the Research Society of Victorian Periodicals.
