On November 11, 2022, Krystale Littlejohn will present as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2022-2023 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.
Littlejohn‘s work examines race, gender, and reproduction. She is particularly interested in investigating how cultural categories shape behavior in intimate relationships and examining the consequences of these behaviors for health outcomes. Her work has been published in Demography, Gender & Society, and Journal of Health and Social Behavior, among other outlets. Her research has been supported by funding from the ASA Minority Fellowship Program, the American Association of University Women, and the Society of Family Planning. She is currently working on a book project, Just Get on the Pill: Gender, Compulsory Birth Control, and Reproductive Injustice (under contract with University of California Press), where she uses in-depth interviews with young women to examine how taken-for-granted ideas about gender structure inequality in pregnancy prevention.
