About Shelley Reuter
Shelley Z. Reuter began as Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Concordia University in 2003 and received tenure and promotion to Associate in 2007. Prior to joining Concordia University, she was a faculty member at Memorial University of Newfoundland and at Queen’s University, where she also earned her PhD (2001). She has done qualitative research in the historical sociology of medicine and particularly the production of medical knowledge in relation to disease and cultural classifications such as "race" and gender. Dr. Reuter's new research looks at "wellness" promotion and responsibilization in the context of campus student health clinics and university Employee Assistance Programs. A third area of interest is in motherhood and childlessness; Reuter is completing a project on childlessness and reproductive decision-making and beginning a new study of mothers who leave their children. Dr. Reuter teaches at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
