Christopher Kindell is a scholar of public health, urbanization, and race in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century United States and Pacific World. His current book manuscript, The Sanitary Sieve: Public Health, Mobility, and the Making of the Urban Pacific World, 1850–1920 examines how public health officials harnessed the police powers of the state to transform Honolulu from a passive harbor into a disease–screening checkpoint for Hawai‘i, the Pacific, and America’s overseas empire.
