Reproductive Futures: Reproductive Choices?

In Uncategorized on May 5, 2016 at 2:50 pm

4th and 5th July 2016 Southampton

This meeting is designed to bring together academics working on human reproduction from legal and ethical perspectives, in order to consider and reflect on the next era in this field. The key objective of the meeting is to facilitate the cross-fertilisation of ideas on issues that are currently on the reproductive radar, broadly conceived. These ideas will include both a re-engagement with established ‘traditional’ debates (in light of recent developments), and ‘new’ challenges posed by emergent technologies. Amongst others, topics include surrogacy, abortion, and assisted reproductive technologies.

Confirmed speakers include: Julie McCandless (LSE), Kirsty Horsey (University of Kent), and Rita D’Alton Harrison (Royal Holloway). Programme to follow soon:
