Research Interests
Haugeberg is completing a manuscript on the history of women anti-abortion activists in the United States. Women to the Rescue: Leaders, Martyrs, and Foot Soldiers in the Campaign to End Abortion (forthcoming, University of Illinois Press), traces the forty-year history of the contemporary U.S. anti-abortion movement, from the 1960s into the first decade of the twenty-first century.

With the support of the Newcomb College Institute, Haugeberg maintains a blog that showcases primary and secondary resources for studying the history of reproductive health in New Orleans: http://newcomb.tulane.edu/blogs/reprohealth/

Haugeberg has begun a second project on the history of nursing in the United States. This book will examine how the nursing profession engaged the resurgent feminist movement of the 1970s and 1980s.
