The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination's Project on Gender in the Global Community (GGC) will host Lindsay Stevens, Post-doctoral Research Associate at Princeton University's Center for Health and Wellbeing, as guest speaker at the GGC student fellows bi-monthly meeting on Monday, November 19, 2018. Stevens will discuss her research on cultural ideas and assumptions about gender, class, and race that get infused in medicine. Participation in this event is open to Gender in the Global Community student fellows only.

Lindsay Stevens is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Center for Health and Wellbeing and is also affiliated with the Office of Population Research. Her work falls primarily in the fields of health, gender, reproduction, science & technology, and environment. Dr. Stevens researches the cultural ideas and assumptions about gender, class, and race that get infused in medicine, especially reproductive healthcare. She is currently writing a book manuscript that traces the contemporary Western idea of the “planned pregnancy” through public health policy, medical practice, and lived experience. 

Dr. Stevens earned her Ph.D. in sociology from Rutgers University in 2018 and her B.A. in Political Science from Kenyon College in 2010. Her research has been supported by the Society of Family Planning and she has received awards from the Medical Sociology and Body & Embodiment Sections of the American Sociological Association.
