Assistant Professor of Anthropology Christine Sargent is the Spring 2020 American Center of Oriental Research-NEH fellow. During her ACOR fellowship, Sargent will be working on her first ethnographic monograph, which is based on her Ph.D. dissertation. While at ACOR this spring, Sargent will continue visiting familiar faces from her previous fieldwork while focusing on developing the book project. She will also start collecting data for a project examining the impacts of prenatal screening and diagnostic technologies on pregnancy and childbirth, from the perspective of both health professionals and women themselves.
