About the course
Few questions raise more heated debate than those pertaining to family, kinship and reproduction, and indeed, few areas demonstrate more clearly the interconnectedness of the private and the public. The material addressed in this course attends to issues such as reproductive technologies (ARTs) and rights, friendship and intimacy, parenthood, queer families, violence, and practical and conceptual borders between kin and non-kin.
The course has its theoretical basis in interdisciplinary gender studies and offers critical perspectives on family, kinship and reproduction. Students are encouraged to identify different conceptualisations and theoretical traditions in relation to family, kinship and reproduction and then to examine these debates in relation to power, inequality and global contexts.
