Human Reproduction Study Group Annual Conference

19 May 2022
De Montfort University, Leicester, UK

About the Event

We are delighted to welcome our academic friends and colleagues back for an in-person event after an almost three-year hiatus from the Human Reproduction Study Group Annual Conference. We look forward to seeing previous contributors and welcoming new faces to DMU campus.

As always, presentations will include theoretical, methodological, and empirical papers on any social aspects of human reproduction including, but not limited to: prenatal care and screening, pregnancy & childbirth; parenting & kinship; (in)fertility and childlessness; abortion, loss and infant death; artificial gametes, surrogacy, genetics and reproductive technologies.

Researchers across the social sciences and from colleagues working in social policy, economics, demography, law, parenting culture studies, midwifery, sexual and public health and nursing will present their papers. This year we are discussing work on the decolonisation of reproduction and this will be part of a special roundtable involving Dr Natalie Darko (DMU), Dr Priya Davda (The Bayswater Institute), Bernadette Gregory (DMU) and Dr Patricia Hamilton (UCL).

Plenary Address

We are very pleased to announce that the plenary address will be delivered this year by Dr Patricia Hamilton from University College London - Dupes or revolutionaries? Lived experiences of reproducing blackness.
