Overview

How do rapid social and technological changes shape reproductive realms today? What is at stake? What problems are raised? What solutions are offered? In this collection, leading international scholars consider the complex 'choices', anxieties, and challenges of reproduction in postmodernity for both women and men in a range of cultural positions and geographical locations in the West. Focusing on topical issues such as surrogacy, online sperm banking, gamete donation, contraception, and breastfeeding, Reframing Reproduction proposes a new framework for conceptualising the relationship between gender and reproduction in the twenty-first century. Each of the 14 chapters uniquely explores the social aspects of how women and men feel, think, and act in relation to their reproductive 'choices'. Providing accessible and thought-provoking discussions, this book will appeal to those interested in contemporary reproductive practices, technologies, and experiences.
