Dr

Sarah Walsh

 

Sarah Walsh received her BA from Boston College and both her MA and PhD from the University of Maryland, College Park. She was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Race and Ethnicity in the Global South ARC Project at the University of Sydney between 2013 and 2017.

The following year she served as a Research Fellow in the COLOUR OF LABOUR Project at the Universidade de Lisboa. Most recently, she was a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Roots of Contemporary Issues Program at Washington State University. Her first book, The Religion of Life: Eugenics, Race, and Catholicism in Chile, is under contract at University of Pittsburgh Press. She has also published articles in the Catholic Historical Review, History of Science, and the Journal of Iberian and Latin American Studies.
The overall question that informs both Dr Walsh's teaching and research is: how do prejudice and discrimination based on human difference (race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability) maintained in intellectual systems which explicitly reject those concepts? In other words, her research is interested in better understanding how systemic oppression continues to flourish in modern democracies that typically celebrate diversity and rely on notional equality for all. In particular, she examines the role that science and medicine play in this process.
Dr Walsh’s teaching interests include: Latin American history (with particular emphasis on the Southern Cone), the history of science and medicine (especially outside the United States and Europe), race and ethnicity in the Global South, and gender and sexuality studies.
