For my dissertation research, I am exploring the intersections of sexuality, globalization, and sexual and reproductive health among urban, middle-class, adolescents in Mumbai, India. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how this demographic constructs sexuality in the context of a liberalizing metropolis, and subsequently, how that translates into management of their sexual and reproductive health.
