Adrienne Strong

Assistant Professor

Areas of Interest/Research

My research interests coalesce around maternal death in healthcare facilities. This has come to include scholarly interests in obstetric violence, gendered dynamics in the nursing profession and care provision in biomedical settings, health system financing in ethnographic perspective, and stillbirth and accountability. Other interests include hospital ethnography, theories of care, gendered forms of caring, ethics, bureaucracy and documents, respectful maternity care, and notions of risk for both pregnant women and their healthcare providers.
