Racializing Reproduction: Maternal Mortality, Asian American Women and COVID-19

Mon 2/26/2024 • 1PM - 3PM PST

Rolfe Hall Room 2125

This talk is part of a larger ethnographic study of medical racism that centers the experiences of pregnant Asian Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has only further exacerbated pre-existing health disparities, which has led to increasing maternal and infant death. Lalaie Ameeriar is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at York University. During the 2023–24 academic year, she was a fellow in the Asian American Studies Center with the Institute of American Cultures at UCLA.
