CFP: Controlling Sexuality and Reproduction, Past and Present

Conference: Controlling Sexuality and Reproduction, Past and Present
Place: University of Lethbridge, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
Date: August 12-14, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: February 15, 2015
Description: »The conference seeks to explore and challenge the seeming naturalness of historical and current efforts to control and marginalize certain kinds of sex and reproduction, and to illuminate commonalities and differences amongst these various efforts to police sexual, reproductive and family lives. We ask why and how particular sets of behaviours or peoples are targets of control, and thus seek to examine what kinds of ‘normal’ values are being upheld. We encourage presentations that illuminate the production of ableism, heteronormativity, Whiteness, gender, and ideal citizenship.«
