Biography and Research Interests

Seda Saluk is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Anthropology and holds a Graduate Certificate in Advanced Feminist Studies from the Department of Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies. Her dissertation project examines the material, subjective, and relational worlds of women in Turkey’s reproductive health care system in the midst of pronatalist state policies and global push towards health statistics. She focuses on health information technologies used in hospitals and clinics as emergent forms of reproductive governance, and how different women participate in, experience, and negotiate these technologies along the axes of gender, class, and race/ethnicity.
