Pressen skrev

"An Honorable Mention goes to Anne Line Dalsgaard’s meticulous, thoughtful and beautifully written ethnography, Matters of Life and Longing: Female Sterilization in Northeast Brazil (Copenhagen: Museum Tusculanum Press, 2004). This study seeks to place the high rates of sterilization found among poor women in urban Brazil in the context of their everyday struggles to find self-respect and autonomy under precarious conditions. Dalsgaard successfully achieves that difficult balance between attending to the workings of individual agency while giving due weight to the structural inequalities that so constrain it. Sterilization is understood as one of the few means through which women can exert control over their own lives and achieve recognition from others in the favela environment. A first book derived from the author’s doctoral research, the judges found this to be an unusually mature work offering a fresh approach that deserves particular acknowledgement."

"...it is a pleasure to read the writing of someone so clearly enthusiastic about her fieldsite and interlocutors, the importance of her research, and the anthropological project more gererally."
