Population Health Resource Directory

Stevan Harrell


I have been studying population since graduate school, and have published a number of studies on the history of fertility in China and Taiwan. I have also studied family structure and the way it changes with historical changes in political economy, both in East Asia and worldwide. Most recently, I have co-edited “Transforming Patriarchy: Chinese Families in the 21st Century” (University of Washington Press, 2016).

My work on environmental sustainability and ecosystem resilience is also relevant to population health. I have collaborated with earth scientists on a series of articles on the local impact of reforestation projects in China, and am currently writing an ecological history of the People’s Republic, a book with diverse implications for population health.
