Brown University Working Group on China:
Susan Short's research on China focuses on the one-child policy, fertility and reproductive health, family and gender. She is a social demographer interested in how China 's rapid demographic, economic, and social changes articulate with family and household processes to shape individual welfare. Related to these interests, she conducted fieldwork in two counties in Hubei Province in the mid 1990's on children under the one-child policy. Since coming to Brown in 1997, Short has written papers with colleagues here, including China group member White, former Brown Fulbright Fellow and Nankai University Professor, Tan Lin, and former Brown graduate students, Rongjun Sun and Juhua Yang.
