Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Mann is a sociologist whose research focuses on sexualities and reproduction. These emphases are connected through an emphasis on sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice; healthcare and medicine; and intersectional social and health inequalities. Her work uses qualitative research methods to examine how health promotion efforts unfold in variety of institutional contexts and explore how structural, institutional, interpersonal, and individual factors shape the social regulation and decision making of people of reproductive age regarding sex, pregnancy, childbirth, contraception, and parenthood. In particular, her work centers adolescent and young women, economically and racially marginalized women, and LGBTQ+ people. Her scholarship has been published in journals such as Contraception, Critical Public Health, Gender & Society, Sexuality Research & Social Policy, and Symbolic Interaction. In addition to serving as the Associate Director of the Women’s and Gender Studies (WGST) Program, she holds a joint appointment in WGST and teaches courses on feminist theory, maternal and child health, and LGBT health.
