Julie M. Powell received her PhD spring 2020 from The Ohio State University.
Her research focuses on gender, technology and the body in wartime. She is the author of “Shock Troupe: Medical Film and the Performance of ‘Shell Shock’ for the British Nation at War” (Social History of Medicine, 2017) and “About-Face: Gender, Disfigurement and the Politics of French Reconstruction, 1918-1924” (Gender & History, 2016). Her dissertation, “The Labor Army of Tomorrow: Masculinity and the Internationalization of Rehabilitation, 1914-1924,” explores the growth of wartime rehabilitation initiatives for disabled soldiers and the rhetoric that accompanied and facilitated this expansion.
