Overview

Reproducing Narrative sets out to interrogate a number of medico-legal reproductive discourses. Recognising that these dialogues are heavily imbricated in social, political and economic discourses it is contended that responses to reproductive issues are influenced, and possibly determined, by non-reproductive concerns at both a parochial and more general level. Privileged medico-legal discourses become understood as technologies of gender-important sites at which gender is constituted.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Countering the treatment of reproduction as an acultural phenomena, the author contends that reproduction, the reproductive body, and fetal identity are transformed by and embody a complex system of historical and cultural externalities. He examines such issues as: how gender narratives are similar in medical opposition to abortion, women's' education, and some areas of female employment; the way gender is constructed within the legal arena; how the creation of industrial fetal protection policies aimed at the exclusion of women from toxic workplaces on the basis of perceived fetal vulnerability was imbued with gender narratives; and similar processes in the writing of the English Parliament's Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act of 1990. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
