Jessica Martucci earned her PhD from the History and Sociology of Science Department at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011. Afterwards, Martucci joined the faculty of Mississippi State University’s Department of History as an assistant professor in women’s history and the history of medicine. In 2015 Martucci joined the Medical Ethics and Health Policy Department at Penn as a Fellow in Advanced Biomedical Ethics. Her first book, Back to the Breast: Natural Motherhood and Breastfeeding in America (University of Chicago Press, 2015) examines the history of the modern return to breastfeeding as a practice among American mothers. She has also published on aspects of this work in the Nursing History Review, The Journal of Women’s History, and Pediatrics.
