Roddey Reid is an interdisciplinary scholar working at the intersection of French studies, science studies, communication, history, and cultural studies. He holds a B.A. in English literature from Duke University and a Ph.D. in French literature from Yale University and has studied and conducted research in the U.S., France, Italy, Belgium, and Japan. His teaching and scholarship focus on the history of modern cultures and societies from the perspective of the changing ways in which citizenship and selfhood are shaped by particular cultural forms (literature, media, advertising, fashion), governmental policies, medical and scientific knowledge, and social movements. A former Japan Foundation Abe Fellow (awarded by the Social Science Research Council), he is author of Families in Jeopardy: Regulating the Social Body in France, 1750-1910 (Stanford University Press, 1993), co-editor (with Sharon Traweek) of Doing Science + Culture: How Cultural and Interdisciplinary Studies Are Changing the Way We Look at Science and Medicine (Routledge, 2000), and author of Globalizing Tobacco Control: Anti-Smoking Campaigns in California, France, and Japan (Indiana University Press, 2005).
