        Natalie Lira earned her Ph.D. in American Culture from the University of Michigan. Her doctoral research uncovers the largely neglected racial aspects of California’s eugenic sterilization program by providing statistical evidence of the high rates of sterilization experienced by Mexican-origin women and men in institutions for the feebleminded during the first half of the 20th century. Mobilizing an interdisciplinary mix of feminist, critical racial and historical lenses, Dr. Lira’s research explores the history of institutionalization and forced sterilization of Mexican Americans and their families as well as their resistance to reproductive constraint, figuring these experiences of confinement and sterilization as central to larger histories of racial and reproductive struggles. In addition to her doctoral research Dr. Lira is also a Co-Principle Investigator for the “Eugenics and Coerced Sterilization in California Project,” an interdisciplinary collaboration aimed at creating a digital archive and large-scale database of de-identified demographic data derived from more than 15,000 sterilization requests processed during the 1920s -1950s. She is currently a Chancellors Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Latina/Latino Studies at the UIUC.
