Dr. Ludlow is Associate Professor of English and Coordinator of Women’s Studies. Her research interests include representations of abortion and reproduction in contemporary literature and writing, abortion discourse, and activist pedagogy. Exploring author Julia Alvarez’s claim that there are truths that “can only finally be understood by fiction, only finally be redeemed by the imagination,” her presentation is about the power of the humanities to redeem complex truths in a transitional historical moment in U.S. reproductive rights politics.
