Professor Apter specializes in twentieth-century Chinese social and cultural history, with a particular focus on the histories of children, childhood, and the issue of state and society. He teaches surveys of East Asia, Chinese civilization, and modern China as well as upper-division courses on the People’s Republic and the history of women in China. He is currently preparing an article on child relief in Post-Mao China for publication in both English and Chinese and starting a new project on the topic of street urchins in Shanghai in the 1930s and 1940s.
