Biographical Notes:

Taida Wolfe was raised in Maplewood, NJ and graduated from her local high school. She went on to Dartmouth College where she pursued her interest in medicine and biology. During her junior year she decided to modify her Biology major with Women’s Studies in order to explore her growing interest in feminist studies and critical race theory. She took time off after college to earn a masters in Health Care Management and Policy from New York University, work in creating Medicaid expansion programs in New York, and volunteering at reproductive rights organizations. She eventually went on to receive her doctor of medicine from Tufts University, complete a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, and pursue a gynecology fellowship in Family Planning at the University of Michigan. It was through her work with her mentor Lisa Harris, MD, PhD at the University of Michigan— who encouraged her to think outside traditional medical research paradigms—that she became fascinated by the intersection of race, class, gender and reproductive experience. Currently her research interest lie in exploring how race, socioeconomic class, and history contribute to a stratified experience of reproduction.

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
