M. Condit, Ph.D.
in the social impact of genetics research. I study the social
and ethical dimensions of public communication about genetics.
I focus especially on the impact of new genetics research and
technologies on women's reproductive options and constraints.
I study the interface of public discourse, personal attitudes,
and social policy on these issues. I use a variety of methods
including discourse analysis, audience analysis, surveys, observation,
and quasi-field research. Particular sub-issue contents of interest
are biological determinism and genetic discrimination.
