Here, Cassia Roth, assistant professor of history and Latin American and Caribbean studies, discusses her book A Miscarriage of Justice: Women’s Reproductive Lives and the Law in Early Twentieth-Century Brazil and the ongoing research that has led her to a newly awarded fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the project “Birthing Abolition: Enslaved Women, Reproduction, and the Gradual End of Slavery in Nineteenth-century Brazil.”
