About

Elizabeth Robersts is a feminist ethnographer of science, medicine, and technology. Her work has included research on assisted reproduction in the United States and Ecuador, reproductive governance in Latin America, transnational medical migrations, and, currently, environmental health science in the United States and Mexico. Roberts is the Director of two ongoing team-based projects in Mexico City: “Mexican Exposures: A Bioethnographic Approach to Health and Inequality” and “Neighborhood Environments as Socio-Techno-bio Systems: Water Quality, Public Trust, and Health in Mexico City” (NESTSMX). In these projects Roberts and her team trace the looping life conditions that shape bodily relations, challenging the notion of biology as fixed, universal, and apolitical.
