Katrina Karkazis

Stanford cultural and medical anthropologist Katrina Karkazis studies the history and treatment of intersex people. Her groundbreaking book, Fixing Sex: Intersex, Medical Authority, and Lived Experience, appeared in 2008. Recent work examines policies around “gender verification” for elite women athletes and her article on this topic in The American Journal of Bioethics was among the two most read articles in the history of the journal. Karkazis is a frequent speaker to academic, clinical and lay audiences on issues at the interface of medicine and society.
