Poster 168: Johnny Rodriguez – Reclaiming the Sterilized Body

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Claudia Geist

This research is a historical analysis and retelling of the forced and coerced sterilizations of minority and marginalized communities through out the 1900s. Historical documents, articles, laws, policies, etc. were analyzed for information. The research was reinterpreted to rid of heavy jargon and be more accessible to communities outside of academia. The information was gathered into a zine that focuses on types of sterilizations, eugenic laws, California laws, U.S. economic advancement, etc.
