WGS Professor Sarah Richardson has been featured in the November-December issue of Harvard Magazine. The article The Sciece of Sex by Bennett McIntosh, discusses Richardson's latest research at the intersection of gender, science, and history: the idea of maternal imprint. Richardson has traced the "history of the idea that a woman’s actions or environment during pregnancy can affect her children’s and even grandchildren’s health and welfare throughout their lives."
If you're curious to learn more, Richardson's book, The Maternal Imprint will be published by the University of Chicago in 2020. And in the meanwhile, you can read the full Harvard Magazine article here.
