Haejoo Kim received her Ph.D. in 2021 from Syracuse University. Her book project, Medical Liberty and Alternative Health Practices in Nineteenth-Century Britain, traces the rise of medical liberty as a concept by examining cultural representations of alternative health practices in nineteenth-century Britain, such as anti-vaccination, hydropathy, and vegetarianism. Her article, “The Rhetoric of Hydropathy and Lay Medical Agency in Mid-Nineteenth-Century Britain,” was published in Literature and Medicine. She has another article, “Vegetarian Evolution in Nineteenth-Century Britain,” coming out soon in the Journal of Victorian Culture. She is a recipient of the 2020 Curran Fellowship from the Research Society of Victorian Periodicals. She is a regular writer at Synapsis: A Health Humanities Journal.
