April 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Sara Curran, Professor of International Studies, Professor of Public Policy & Governance & Professor of Sociology, University of Washington
I serve as director of the UW’s Center for Studies in Demography & Ecology. Recently and delightedly, I was selected to join the Executive Council of UW President Ana Mari Cauce’s new Population Health Initiative. This exciting endeavor provides an outstanding opportunity to amplify UW’s substantial health research, training, and applications across the entire campus on behalf of local and global healthy outcomes.
I research gender, migration, and environment in developing countries. Current projects include social change and migration, climate change and migration, and disaster disparities. I am writing a book, Demographic Dynamics and Development Transformations in Thailand. I have authored work that appears in Demography, Population and Development Review, Social Science Research, Teaching Sociology, Journal of International Women’s Studies, and Journal of Marriage and the Family.
