ABOUT

Nolan Kline is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Co-Coordinator of the Global Health Program at Rollins College. Prior to joining the faculty at Rollins, he was as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Consumer Science at Purdue University. He received his PhD in Applied Anthropology and a master of public health (MPH) from the University of South Florida. His primary research areas include immigrant policing and health, LGBTQ+ Latinx legal mobilization, immigration and health policy, and sexual health focusing on human papillomavirus. Much of his research is informed by theories of biopolitics, critical race theory, and the political economy of health. As an applied, medical anthropologist, his work intersects with public health, policy, and activism

 

RESEARCH

Current Projects

IMMIGRANT POLICING

These studies examine the multiple health-related consequences of immigration enforcement laws, police practices, and other related policies. Field sites include Atlanta, Georgia, and Orlando, Florida.

SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HPV AND HPV PREVENTION

These studies fall into two categories. One set of studies is the result of a team science effort focused on how to involve dental providers in HPV-prevention. Another set of studies examines social determinants of HPV-related prevention efforts, including examining how farm labor constrains HPV vaccination for children of Latinx migrant farmworkers. Study sites are nationwide for providers and in Central Florida for farmworker-related studies.

LGBTQ+ LATINX ACTIVISM IN ORLANDO

Studies related to this topic focus on efforts to advance health equity, political and legal rights, and improve the lives for populations who identify as LGBTQ+ and Latinx. All studies are done in Orlando, Florida.

CV

 

“Pathogenic Policing tells an important story that we all need to hear. The pipeline from local policing to deportation does not just remove unauthorized immigrants for petty traffic offenses. It frightens them, their families, and neighborhoods—indeed, this is a major cause of family separation—leading to self-denial of needed health care, a serious burden on communities. Kline’s explanation of these connections is clear, well-supported, and passionate; this is a vital book.”

-Josiah Heyman, co-editor of The U.S.-Mexico Transborder Region: Cultural Dynamics and Historical Interactions
