Professor Maria Fannin

My research interests include feminist theoretical approaches to health and new medical technologies and empirical research on the ‘tissue economies’ of health and medicine. Current research projects include a collaborative study on the making of the placenta as a scientific object in contemporary midwifery practice and medical research. I am also interested in the social and governmental dimensions of pregnancy and childbirth, and more recently, the intersections of motherhood and entrepreneurialism in the UK.
