Reproduction in Africa: New Horizons Event

Please join the Re-imagining Reproduction research group for their inaugural event on 20 & 21 September 2022.

This event is the first of five events that takes place annually, once in each of the 5 countries that are part of the Re-imagining Reproduction: Making babies, making kin and citizens in Africa project. The keynote speakers will discuss the idea of whether there is a need to re-imagine scholarship on reproduction in Africa, what this might look like and/or what this might achieve.

The aim of this event is to discuss the idea of what a reimagining of scholarship on reproduction in Africa might look like and might achieve (or not). Towards this end we will be discussing studies of reproduction of the past, present and future, asking:

  • What does re-imagining reproduction entail?
  • What are the prospects, opportunities and challenges involved?
  • What are the emerging trends in reproduction and caring within Africa?
