Anabel Stoeckle PhD Candidate Department of Sociology, Wayne State University, Detroit

Anabel is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology at Wayne State University. She also holds a Master of Sociology from the University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt in Germany. Her research focuses on gender, work, family, and feminist theory. Her PhD thesis, “Body/Sex/Work – Surrogacy as a New Form of Intimate and Embodied Labor”, explores the way that gestational surrogacy arrangements both redefine “care” and “work” on both a national and global scale. As a 2016 Doctoral Associate, Anabel will receive support in order to finish her data collection and present her research at the pre-ISA workshop on Care Work in Vienna, Austria, in July 2016.
