[NOVEMBER 30, 2023] Feminisms Unbound: Radicalizing Reproduction

Thursday, Nov 30
05:30-7:30 PM
Online (registration required)

Join Boston’s Graduate Consortium of Women’s Studies for a panel on reproductive governance and care! Reproduction is increasingly the locus of political panic, from attacks on abortion rights to ethical debates about new reproductive technologies. But moral panics about reproduction are nothing new. The reproduction of bodies and labor has been regulated and surveilled in the service of a variety of projects in a variety of historical contexts–tied to nationalism, capitalism, racial domination, class, gender, and sexual regulation. How can feminist scholarship, art, and activism clarify the forms reproductive governance can take, while pushing us to imagine more radical forms of reproductive care?
