The Career Enhancement Fellows are exceptional scholars whose work broadens the range of perspectives and understandings offered on college campuses and creates opportunities for crucial new scholarly voices to be heard in disciplines and institutions.

Kelly works in the areas of the sociology of medicine, organizational sociology, and the sociology of race, class, and gender. Her current research draws on an ethnographic account of a standalone abortion clinic to explore the ways in which reproductive workers’ experience of abortion provision is shaped by competing institutional logics, as well as by cultural beliefs about bodies and intimacy in medical settings. Kelly is an Assistant Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies and Sociology, and she is a member of UW Collaborative for Reproductive Equity.
