Kimberly McKee is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Liberal Studies at Grand Valley State University. She recently completed a Consortium for Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship at Grinnell College. She received her Ph.D in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from The Ohio State University. She is presently revising her dissertation into a book manuscript, Markets, Chidren, and "Love": Investigating the Transnational Adoption Industrial Complex. Utilizing adoption from Korea to the United States as a case study, this project interrogates the institutional practice of international adoption. In doing so, she traces the origins of what she terms, the transnational adoption industrial complex, and challenges the portrayal of international adoption as solely an act of humanitarianism and child rescue.
