Research and Teaching Interests
Dr. Mann is a sociologist whose research focuses primarily on the areas of sexualities and reproduction. These emphases are connected through a focus on sexual and reproductive health; healthcare and medicine; and social and health inequalities. Her work uses qualitative research methods to examine how health promotion efforts unfold in variety of institutional contexts and explore how institutional, cultural, interpersonal, and individual factors shape the decision making of people of reproductive age regarding sex, pregnancy, childbirth, contraception, and parenthood. She holds a joint appointment in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and teaches courses on feminist theory, maternal and child health, and LGBT health.
