    Professor Bridges will discuss her book, Reproducing Race: An Ethnography of Pregnancy as a Site of Racialization. The book is a product of eighteen months of fieldwork research conducted in the obstetrics clinic of a large New York City public hospital. The study investigates how race—commonly seen as biological in the medical world—is socially constructed among women dependent on the public healthcare system for prenatal care and childbirth. The research shows how the ‘medicalization’ of social problems reproduces racial stereotypes and governs the bodies of poor women of color.

    Khiara M. Bridges holds a dual appointment at Boston University as an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Associate Professor of Law. She has written many articles concerning, race, class, reproductive rights, and the intersection of the three. Her scholarship has appeared or will soon appear in the Stanford Law Review, the Columbia Law Review, the California Law Review, the Emory Law Journal, the Boston University Law Review, the Fordham Law Review, the Washington Law Review, and the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, among others. In addition to her book Reproducing Race, she has also published The Poverty of Privacy Rights (2017) on Stanford University Press.
