About

This web site would serve as a resource portal for students, scholars, and independent researchers who are interested in the history of reproductive health politics in New Orleans. It will include information about local archival collections, scholarly monographs, and web resources that pertain to the history of gynecological care, birth control, and abortion.

As part of a course on the history or reproductive health offered in Spring 2014, this forum will allow students to upload research materials, post informal diary entries that detail the process of conducting research, and submit final drafts of their research essays. The web site will also be an important resource for communicating to the public the end-of-the-semester symposium, in which students will deliver brief presentations about their research on the history of reproductive politics in New Orleans. Flyers for this event will direct the public’s attention to the site, which will showcase full-length versions of the students’ essays, primary sources from archival collections and interviews, and bibliographic guides.This website serves as a resource portal for students, scholars and independent researchers interested in the history of reproductive health at Tulane University; New Orleans, Louisiana and beyond. Topics relating to abortion, contraception, rape and sexual abuse, birth and the politics of childcare can be found among our resources. It offers a guide to archival and other primary materials as well as secondary sources pertinent to the field of reproductive health, most of which are available on Tulane’s campus.

The web site will also be used as a resource for students in the History of Reproductive Health class, available at Tulane University during the Spring 2014 semester. Students will be able to contribute their own research findings to expand the site in the near future. At the end of Spring 2014, this website will showcase full-length versions of the students’ essays, primary sources from archival collections and interviews and bibliographic guides.
