Forthcoming special issue of Feminist Theory on
‘Feminism(s) and the Politics of Reproduction’
Feminist Theory calls for papers for a special issue on feminism and the politics of reproduction, to be edited by Natalia Gerodetti and Véronique Mottier. The special issue is based upon the premise that there is a continued need for feminist analyses of reproduction, especially at a time when scientific possibilities, social practices and cultural representations around reproduction are continuously changing. Essays are invited that examine the ways in which reproduction has been or needs to be politicised as a feminist issue, and the implications of recent transformations in reproductive technologies for feminist agendas. We particularly welcome historical and comparative analyses of state regulation of reproductive capacities, of national anxieties around reproduction, of connections between reproductive practices and disability, and of cultural representations of reproduction. Contributors may come from a variety of disciplines, including political science, sociology, psychology, social anthropology, law, geography, or literature.
The deadline for submission of articles is 1 March 2008.
