CHLS Workshop: Reproductive Expectations

27 October 2021, 1.30 PM - 27 October 2021, 4.30 PM

Reproductive Expectations:
Disruption, Transgression and Re-Configuration

Exchanges across Anthropology, Law, and Social Policy

The Centre for Health, Law & Society at the University of Bristol Law School welcomes you to a virtual workshop that brings together scholars of reproduction working across the fields of anthropology, law, and social policy. We are interested in what the disruption and transgression of reproductive expectations can reveal about social responses to policy and law, and what consequences for (reproductive) governance arise. We will critically-engage how non-compliance with policy and law is performed relationally to compliance with competing ideologies, philosophies, and expectations. The interdisciplinary exchange will take place across two linked panels:

Panel 1 (1:30-2:35pm)

1:30pm: Welcome, Dr Ben Kasstan (University of Bristol Law School)

1:35-2:35pm, Panel 1: Chaired by Professor Marie-Andrée Jacob School of Law, University of Leeds

Break (2:35-2:40pm)

2:40-2:55, Inclusion in Policy Response Dr Sandra Duffy University of Bristol Law School; Lawyers for Choice

A Call for Trans Inclusion in Reproductive Justice

Break (2:55-3:00pm)
