Alexandra Fair is a doctoral student in African American Studies and an AM student in the Department of the History of Science. Her research examines the linguistic strategies Anglo-American eugenic theorists use to reconstitute eugenic ideology in modern academic and political spaces. She argues that transatlantic networks of eugenic theorists sustained hierarchical conversations about the relative value of human reproduction in increasingly public spaces.
During the 2019/2020 academic year Alexandra received a Fulbright-University of Reading Postgraduate Award to complete an M.A in History at the University of Reading. She also holds an M.A. in History from Miami University. Prior to her graduate studies Alexandra conducted research on reproductive healthcare and policy for the International Planned Parenthood affiliate Sex og Politikk in Oslo, Norway and the Washington D.C. based non-profit Unite for Reproductive Gender and Equity.
