June - July 2024 

Dr. Eva Fiks is a Caroline Miles Visiting Scholar at the Ethox Centre. She is a Lecturer in Medical Anthropology at the School of Medicine at Keele University, UK. 

Dr. Fiks' research examines care, reproduction, and the state in north India. Her first book, State Intimacies: Sterilization, Care, and Reproductive Chronicity in Rural North India (Berghahn Books, 2024), ethnographically investigates the relations, conditions, and idioms that make sterilization the most prevalent and convenient method of contraception for many women in rural India. At Ethox, Dr. Fiks explores the everyday ethics of clinicians and state functionaries involved in the organisation of sterilization camps.
