Sahar Sadjadi is an anthropologist and medical doctor, joining the McGill University faculty at the Department of Social Studies of Medicine. Her research lies at the intersection of medical anthropology, gender, and sexuality studies and childhood studies. Her recent project has examined how medicine approaches bodies in transition across life stage and sex. She is interested in the potentials and limits of biomedicine when implicated in the projects of social justice, and the temporal and affective politics governing biomedical interventions that seek to enhance the life chances of marginalized children. At Princeton, she will research the ethical implications of current medical treatments to suppress growth and puberty among children diagnosed with precocious puberty, gender variant children, and disabled children.
