Jennifer S. Hirsch

Anres Oyuela

Jennifer Hirsch's research spans five intertwined domains: the anthropology of love; gender, sexuality and migration; sexual, reproductive and HIV risk practices; social scientific research on sexual assault and undergraduate well-being, and the intersections between anthropology and public health. She has published articles in journals such as American Journal of Public Health, Studies in Family Planning, AIDS, and Culture Health and Sexuality. Her books include "A Courtship After Marriage: Sexuality and Love in Mexican Transnational Families," which explores changing ideas and practices of love, sexuality and marriage among Mexicans in the U.S. and in Mexico, and the co-authored "The Secret: Love, Marriage and HIV," which analyzes the social organization of extramarital sexual practices in Mexico, Nigeria, Uganda, Vietnam and Papua-New Guinea and the implications of those practices for married women's HIV risk. Along with Dr. Claude Ann Mellins, Hirsch co-directed the Sexual Health Initiative to Foster Transformation (SHIFT), a study supported by Columbia University that examines sexual health and sexual assault among Columbia and Barnard undergraduates. She is the co-author, with sociologist Shamus Khan, of "Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power, and Assault on Campus."
