Using a wide range of sources, from physiology textbooks to popular parenting books and pharmaceutical advertisements, Celia Roberts analyses the multiple ways in which sex hormones have come to matter to us today. Bringing feminist theories of the body into dialogue with science and technology studies, she develops tools to address one of the most important questions facing feminism today: how is biological sex conceivable?

Dr Celia Roberts is a Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at Lancaster University. She has strong links with the Centre for Gender and Women’s Studies, the Centre for Science Studies, the Division of Health Research, and the ESRC Centre for the Economic and Social Aspects of Genomics (CESAGen). Dr Roberts’ research centres on the body, health, reproduction, sexuality and aging.
