Rebekah Getman

Sociology PhD Candidate

Rebekah entered the program in 2016 after working in global public health for several years. She is interested in the ways the concept of health is socially constructed and policed, both within the public sphere via social movements and in medical institutions. She uses qualitative and quantitative methods (including network and text analysis) to examine these questions and explore what feminist health models might look like in public discourse and in medicine across specialties. Previously, Rebekah earned an M.Ed. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and an B.A. from Harvard College in History and Government.
