    Biography

    Virginia Berndt is a PhD candidate in Sociology. She earned her Master of Arts degree in Sociology at Lehigh University, and her master’s thesis examined the impact of climate-related disasters on women’s health. Research based on her master’s thesis is currently under review for publication. Ginger presented findings from this thesis at two international conferences, including the International Sociological Association annual meeting in Toronto, Canada, and the Northern European Conference on Emergency and Disaster Studies (NEEDS) in Uppsala, Sweden. Ginger’s research on contraceptive access in disaster settings has won her the Natural Hazards Center Graduate Student Paper award and, in addition to being presented at conferences, is currently under review for publication. Her additional research stems from her four consecutive years of work as a research assistant on a team charged with qualitatively evaluating the state-wide, governor-initiated Delaware Contraceptive Access Now intervention. She has presented research resulting from this evaluation at several conferences, including the annual meetings for the Eastern Sociological Society and the American Sociological Association, yearly since 2017. A manuscript resulting from these findings is currently under review for publication, and she has working papers in development on this topic well. Ginger’s dissertation centers on how women’s embodied experiences with contraception interrelate with its medicalization. She also serves on the Membership Committee for the ASA’s Section on the Sociology of the Body and Embodiment and is running for the position of section Student Representative. Virginia’s research interests include reproductive health, the body, disaster, and sociological theory.
