Elizabeth Gregory

Elizabeth Gregory directs the Women’s Gender & Sexuality Studies Program and the Institute for Research on Women, Gender & Sexuality at the University of Houston. A professor of English, she publishes on American modernist poetry and received her Ph.D. from Yale. Her book Ready: Why Women Are Embracing the New Later Motherhood (Basic Books, 2007) was based on interviews with more than 100 new later mothers. Her next project—on building a culture and economy of care—explores the intersectional economics of gender, race, and age, and the way forward.
