Kimberley Manning studies social movements, gender politics, and social policy reform. Drawing on extensive fieldwork in rural Chinese villages and county archives, Dr. Manning has published articles on the origins of gender conflict in China's Great Leap Forward (1958-1960), and co-edited a volume, Eating Bitterness, on the grassroots politics at work in China's Great Leap Forward and Famine (1959-1961). Her monograph (under review), “Attachments: Personal Ties and Social Policy Reform in Revolutionary China,” shows how elite and grassroots party family networks contributed to the early successes and catastrophic losses of the first decade of the People’s Republic of China. Dr. Manning is also a participant on two SSHRC-funded team projects: a study of Sino-Tanzanian relations and a social action research study of gender nonconforming children in Canada. Dr. Manning received her doctorate from the University of Washington (2003), spent 2003-2004 as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for East Asian Studies, Stanford University, and has previously held grants from SSHRC and FQRSC.
