Kathryn Yount, Professor of Global Health and Sociology, Emory University

Ushma Upadhyay, Associate Professor, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Science, UC San Francisco
Upadhyay will cover two main areas of her research: her work evaluating the effects of U.S. state-level restrictions on women’s lives and measurement of sexual and reproductive empowerment among young people.
S Anukriti, Assistant Professor, Department of Economics, Boston College
Anukriti will discuss the impact of the introduction of prenatal sex-detection technologies in India on son-biased fertility stopping behavior, parental investments in girls relative to boys, and the relative chances of girls surviving after birth.
David Pedulla, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Stanford University
Pedulla advances a “muted congruence” theoretical perspective, arguing that when individuals evaluate others who occupy multiple social positions about which stereotypes are highly congruent – for example, being black and being unemployed – the additional category membership will have limited influence over the ultimate evaluation.
Ellis Monk, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Princeton University
Monk brings together research on race, color, and the criminal justice system by using nationally representative data to examine whether (and to what extent) skin tone is associated with policing and punishment among African Americans (e.g. arrest, incarceration, and familial connectedness to incarcerated individuals).
