Rachel Hurst is an associate professor of Women's and Gender Studies at St. Francis Xavier University.
"Dr. Rachel Hurst's research falls within three interconnected, yet distinct, projects. The first project examines the importance of photographic and dermal surfaces for cosmetic surgery. This research has been published and presented nationally and internationally, most significantly in her sole-authored book manuscript Surface Imaginations: Cosmetic Surgery, Photography and Skin, which is presently under review, and in her co-edited book (with Dr. Sheila L. Cavanagh and Dr. Angela Failler), Skin, Culture and Psychoanalysis (Palgrave 2013)." - Faculty Profile, 1/26/16
