Sara Conrad


Visiting Assistant Professor in Sociology and Anthropology

Sara Marie Conrad received her PhD in the departments of Anthropology and The Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies at Indiana University. Because of her multidisciplinary background, she has taught in the departments of Anthropology, Human Biology, Philosophy, Central Eurasian Studies, Biology, and The Kelley School of Business. For her dissertaion, entitled Momo, Motherhood, and the 7 Train: Exiled Tibetan Women in New York City, she spent a total of 12 months between 2014 and 2019 collecting demographic data, birth stories, and dumpling recipes from over 100 Tibetan women in NYC. Her research shifted the Tibetan exile narrative centered on religious exiles to now include Tibetan women as transnational actors who use work, oral histories, religion, memory, school, and food, as ways of maintaining their culture. She interested in reproduction and motherhood, Tibet and Tibetan communities, religion and transnational communities.
