'Reproductive Technologies' Reading Group

March - June 2018

Reproductive Technologies is a six month reading group intended as a prolonged conversation towards a sustained event in July.

The selected texts respond to reproduction in a variety of meanings and explore the position of bodies in system of production and reproduction.

How do notions about gender, motherhood, and sexual difference emerge from and within new scientific technologies? How does language re-produce and consume these different bodies?
