Welcome to my website!
This website contains the full texts of many of my published articles, for your convenience. It will also guide you to the talks that I give around the world, to my full CV and a short bio, and to the books that I have published.
I am available for public speaking in many forums: universities, childbirth and midwifery conferences, conferences on alternative health care, on gender issues, on myth and ritual, and on science and technology. I often sit on dissertation committees or serve as external examiner, and supervise independent study for students interested in creating their own projects. I also offer consulting and editorial services.
NEW NEWS!! Many of my articles have been translated into Spanish and now appear on this website next to their English versions–please click on “Articles” in the tabs to the left to see the Spanish translations!
Robbie Davis-Floyd offers live-in internships to interested students. The purpose of the internship can range from an introduction to the Anthropology of Reproduction to writing up your Master’s thesis or PhD dissertation, or article or book, with Robbie’s help. The internship could be designed as an Independent Study course for which you could get credit from your own university; it can also be used as a “writer’s retreat.” In return for her assistance with your project, Robbie will ask you at times to help with certain aspects of her own work, such as tape transcription or perhaps conducting interviews. Interns can also come to conduct fieldwork in Austin, where we have a rich variety of midwives and medical centers. The length of the internship can vary from some weeks to some months. If you are interested please contact Robbie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
