BC1023: Feminism, Science, and Reproductive Technology | C. Lie-Spahn

Undergraduate Seminar
Tu Th 9AM-12:10PM
Summer 2021 B Term

Reproduction is both a biological and social process—one that is often the target of deep-seated ideas about identity, culture, science, and technology. How have contraceptives, pharmaceuticals, and other technologies shaped reproductive experiences? What does the use and distribution of these scientific innovations reveal about existing power structures and social stratification? What liberatory possibilities do these technologies enable, and what are their limitations? Course material will center work by reproductive justice scholar-activists and feminist science and technology studies scholarship.
