Reproductive History Graduate Symposium

April 29

Reproductive History Graduate Symposium

The organizers of this symposium invite scholars from across the Midwest to join us in deepening our collective understanding of local and global histories of reproduction. With the goal of spotlighting and workshopping the scholarship of graduate students, we seek to connect with others working in the field of reproductive history and engage in interdisciplinary and transnational conversations that engage with subthemes such as:

  • Eugenics, Empire, and Population Control
  • Failed and Assisted Reproduction
  • Families, Kinship, and Adoption
  • Fetuses, Infants, and Childhood
  • Gender and Biomedical Technologies
  • “Othered” Bodies: Race, Transness, and Disability
  • Sexuality and Queer Intimacies

We plan to host the symposium in person but may have to transition to an online modality at a later date in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Please see our call for papers (pdf) for more details on how to participate.
