- Dr. Sarah Elizabeth Ellen Rudrum: "Dr. Rudrum studied the social organization of maternity care and birth in a rural community in post-conflict northern Uganda. She found that pregnant women had to navigate complex power relationships, as well as overcome financial and logistical challenges, in order to access care. Her research has implications for maternity care practice and policy." (May 2015)
- Dr. Anika Nicole Stafford: "Dr. Stafford's dissertation examined gender norms and sexuality in Kindergarten. Her research findings illustrate how primary schools normalize gender conforming heterosexuality at the expensive of queer and transgender people. Her work is useful to anyone concerned with safer schools or interested in gender issues in dominant culture." (May 2014)
