The Lab of Family and Kinship Studies, Department of Social Anthropology and History, University of the Aegean, Greece within the framework of the research program (In)FERCIT organizes the international conference:


LESVOS, GREECE, 28-30 MAY 2015

The current proliferation of ARTs on European and global level necessitates that research moves beyond liberal/libertarian vs. restrictive dichotomies and reconsiders topics of reproductive citizenship in relation to the specific cultural contexts, local/ global exchanges and social/ technological networks they emerge from.

In the context of this conference, we propose to explore two axes of research which combine an interdisciplinary approach with a comparative one. The first calls for a cooperation between anthropological and legal studies and aims at exploring its potentialities in the field of reproductive rights and ARTs. The second invites to reflect upon the practicability and epistemological value of comparison, by investigating ARTs implementation in different neighbouring European and non-European countries and transnational reproductive networks emerging within, across and beyond them.
