Susan Glosser completed her Ph.D. in East Asian History at Berkeley in 1995. Her research specialty is modern China (19th and 20th centuries) and she focuses on gender, urban culture, and political culture. Her book on family reform in China in the first half of the twentieth century, Chinese Visions of Family and State, 1915-1953 was published by University of California Press in 2003. Professor Glosser is currently researching the lives of women in Shanghai under Japanese occupation during World War Two. She is also collecting information on the dairy industry in China. Professor Glosser has lived in Taipei and Shanghai. In the summer of 2005 she established her own press, Opal Mogus Books. The press will specialize in translations of unique Chinese documents and materials that have been edited and annotated for use in the classroom. The first publication, Li Fengjin: How the New Marriage Law Helped Chinese Women Stand Up, is a lively example of government propaganda in the People’s Republic of China.
