Following last year’s sold-out launch of this series focussed on the work of Professor Ann Oakley, the Department of Sociology and the Reproductive Sociology Research Group (ReproSoc) are pleased to confirm that this year’s symposium on 1 May 2014 from 1 to 4pm will be focussed on two of the most influential feminist anthologises addressing reproductive technology to be published in the 1980s. Made to Order: the myth of reproductive and genetic progress, edited by Patricia Spallone and Deborah Lynn Steinberg, and Reproductive Technologies: gender, motherhood and medicine, edited by Michelle Stanworth, were both published in the UK in 1987. All three editors of these key texts will join us at our second FCR symposium to discuss a variety of themes, including the challenges of combining activism and publishing, the insights of early feminist analysis of NRTs, the struggle to define a feminist politics in relation to this issue, and some of the key feminist activist groups that emerged in the 1980s. Make sure to reserve a place on the Feminist Classics Revisited site online.
