Professor Inhorn’s research interests revolve around science and technology studies; gender and feminist theory, including masculinity studies; religion and bioethics; globalization and global health; cultures of biomedicine and ethnomedicine; stigma and human suffering. Over the past 20 years, she has conducted multi-sited research on the social impact of infertility and assisted reproductive technologies in Egypt, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, and Arab America. Her many books include Local Babies, Global Science: Gender, Religion, and In Vitro Fertilization in Egypt and Infertility and Patriarchy: The Cultural Politics of Gender and Family Life in Egypt. We talk with Professor Inhorn about her new book, The New Arab Man: Emergent Masculinities, Technologies, and Islam in the Middle East.
