STEMinar Jade Sasser

Join us for a July STEMinar

We invite faculty, scholars, and experts to explore the intersections of their various identities with their science. We hope that with each monthly lecture in this series, you will be able to explore your own path through the world of STEM and reflect on how your science interacts with who you are as a broader person.

Dr. Jade Sasser

An Associate Professor in the Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies at UC Riverside. Her work explores how large scale environmental problems such as climate change and air pollution intersect with women's bodies, health, rights, and reproduction. Her first book, On Infertile Ground: Population Control and Women's Rights in the Era of Climate Change, was published in 2018 by NYU Press, and recently won the Emory Elliott Book Award from UC Riverside's Center for Ideas in Society. Currently, Dr. Sasser is engaged in three research projects: the first explores the impact of climate change-related emotions on young people's current and future reproductive plans; the second investigates the roles of gender and power in everyday household fuel use, specifically biomass use, in Vietnam, Ethiopia, and Madagascar; and the third project, in partnership with the NAACP, analyzes the role of gender justice in American climate justice organizations' work.
