Five College Women's Studies Research Center Visiting Scholar Lunch with Dr. Rachel Simon-Kumar
We invite you to join us for lunch in-person or on Zoom to learn about Dr. Simon-Kumar's work on abortion decriminalization and sex selection practices, as well as youth, racism and health in New Zealand.
A social scientist by training, Rachel Simon-Kumar currently works at the School of Population health as part of an interdisciplinary team of health researchers. Her research broadly covers topics in women/gender, New Zealand migration and ethnic minority communities, racism, multiculturalism, health, politics, and policy. Her theoretical focus draws on feminist, post-colonial and post-structuralist perspectives; her recent work centers on intersectionality in its varied forms, and its attendant contradictions as it traverses spatial and identity boundaries. Rachel is co-Director of the Centre for Asian and Ethnic Minority Health Research and Evaluation (CAHRE), and in a voluntary capacity, is on the governance board of Shama, an ethnic minority women’s community organization. She also sits on several advisory boards in government.
This short-term residency is supported by the Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund.
