Conference on Reproductive Health, Access, and Action

March 20, 2015 - 9:00am - 3:00pm

Sponsors: GSWS, Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, Humanities Center

This day-long conference will bring together a diverse group of scholars and activists to interrogate the political, legal, social, and scientific dimensions of the struggles for reproductive rights. The conference will highlight scholarship coming out of the humanities, social sciences, medicine and law, as well as the on-the-ground work of organizers. In doing so, we hope to begin conversations across fields and approaches, and facilitate fruitful connections between academics and activists who work on issues of reproductive rights from a variety of angles and perspectives.
