Kelly Marie Ward
Position title: Assistant Professor
I work in the areas of the sociology of medicine, organizational sociology, and the sociology of race, class, and gender. My current research draws on an ethnographic account of a standalone abortion clinic to explore the ways in which reproductive workers’ experience of abortion provision is shaped by competing institutional logics, as well as by cultural beliefs about bodies and intimacy in medical settings.
I am an Anna Julia Cooper Postdoctoral Fellow and will start my position as an Assistant Professor in the Gender & Women’s Studies and Sociology Departments in Fall 2021.
