Kellianne King Headshot


I am a PhD candidate in 19th and 20th century United States history pursuing a dual-title in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. My research interests include the history of science and medicine, particularly the professionalization of neurology and psychiatry in the latter half of the nineteenth century. I am interested in the ways diagnoses, treatments, and prognoses differed along race, gender, and class lines.
