In Bodies in Doubt, Macaulay professor Elizabeth Reis traces the changing definitions, perceptions, and medical management of intersex (atypical sex development) in America from the colonial period to the present. Arguing that medical practice must be understood within its broader cultural context, Reis demonstrates how deeply physicians have been influenced by social anxieties about marriage, heterosexuality, and same-sex desire throughout American history.
Professor Elizabeth Reis teaches Medical Ethics, Reproductive Technologies, The Politics of Women’s Health, and Transgender Issues at Macaulay Honors College.
