Biography

Jaya Keaney is a feminist technoscience and Cultural Studies scholar. Her research explores the intersections of reproduction, bioscientific cultures and social inequity. Her projects have examined race, gender and sexuality in reproductive markets, the implications of epigenetics for understandings of intergenerational trauma and Indigenous health, and the cultural politics of emerging placental modelling technologies. Jaya was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Cambridge (Reproductive Sociology Research Group) in 2018. She received her PhD in Gender Studies from the University of Sydney in 2019, and her doctoral thesis exploring race, reproductive technology and queer family making was awarded the Australian Women's and Gender Studies PhD Prize (2020-21).
