Ph.D., Princeton University

Dr. Marshall’s research examines how cultural and social contexts shape understandings of family and fertility. She is particularly interested in the use of innovative methods to study culture and fertility. In her dissertation, she used multiple methods to examine how strikingly similar national fertility trends were interpreted very differently in Great Britain and France from the end of World War II to the end of the twentieth century.
