Reproductive Sociology Research Group


Gabriela Hertig was a visiting scholar with ReproSoc from August 2018 to May 2019 with a mobility fellowship awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. In 2019, she has received her Ph.D. from the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. Her Ph.D. project is based on long-term ethnographic research in Delhi and Mumbai and provides an analysis of stem cell therapies in India, showing how the everyday commercial and therapeutic provision of these treatments is entangled with normative regimes of science and medicine, the formalization of (bio)ethics and regulatory concerns in India and globally. She has been teaching on health, governance, development and gender at the Graduate Institute in Geneva and the University of Zurich and was an editor for the open-access journal Medicine, Anthropology, Theory (MAT).
