Ugo Edu
Assistant Professor |
UCLA Department of African American Studies

Ugo F. Edu is a medical anthropologist working at the intersection of medical anthropology, public health, black feminism, and science, technology, and society studies (STS). Using interdisciplinary approaches, her scholarship focuses on reproduction, race, gender, aesthetics, and body knowledge and modifications. Her book project: Beauty and the Black: Aesthetics, Race, and Sterilization in Brazil, traces the influence of an economy of race, aesthetics, and sexuality on reproductive and sterilization practices of women in Brazil. She is working on a play, Securing Ties, which draws heavily on her book project as a means for critical public engagement and an incorporation of the arts in her scholarship.
