    Dr. Kathryn Goldfarb is a cultural anthropologist whose research in Japan focuses on the stakes of disconnection from family networks. Dr. Goldfarb examines how kinship ideologies articulate with discourses of Japanese national and cultural identity, how these discourses shape understandings of what is “normal,” and how these concepts of normalcy are caught up in global circuits of knowledge surrounding human development, child rights, and concepts of “care” under the rubric of social welfare.
