02:30PM 04:00PM Speaker: Dána-Ain Davis THE SPACE BETWEEN WOMB AND HOME: NICUs, Racism, and Premature Birth: School: All Emory UniversityDepartment / Organization: Anthropology DepartmentCost: FreeContact Name: Eva StotzContact Email: estotz@emory.eduBased on the book, Reproductive Injustice: Racism, Pregnancy, and Premature Birth, this talk explores some of the power dynamics that exist in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). NICU technology holds the technological potential to save neonates, but there are other nodes of power and racism also percolating in this space.Dána-Ain Davis is Professor of Urban Studies and Anthropology at Queens College. She is the director of the Center for the Study of Women and Society at the Graduate Center. Davis’ work covers two broad domains: Black feminist ethnography and the dynamics of race and racism. With regard to the latter, she has examined the ways race and racism animate neo-liberalism and re- production. This project has resulted in one co-edited volume with Shaka McGlotten, Black Genders and Sexualities (2013) and two single authored books Battered Black Women and Welfare Reform: Between a Rock and Hard Place (2006) and Reproductive Injustice: Racism, Pregnancy, and Premature Birth (2019). Davis has co-edited or co-authored two books on feminist ethnography with Christa Craven, reasserting the importance of feminist ethnographic production as intervention. The most recent being Feminist Ethnography: Thinking Through Methodologies, Challenges and Possibilities (2016). + None Campus Events
