Carrie Hough

Augustana College

During her residency, Carrie is working on ongoing research that explores midwestern women's decision-making processes regarding the return to work and dimensions of childcare after the birth of their first child. Specifically, she is preparing an article manuscript that analyzes her interviewees’ experiences coupling breastfeeding and post-partum employment and how pumping breast milk at work blurs personal and professional boundaries and identities. Carrie lives in Iowa City and is grateful to have a sabbatical work space at the Obermann Center she can walk to from home.
