Symposium on Assisted Reproduction, Race, Class, and Sexuality

The University of Minnesota Law & Inequality journal will host a symposium on April 10, 2009, on "Contested Contours in Assisted Reproduction: Interrogating Law, Race, Class & Sex":

U Minn The controversial case of Nadya Suleman, mother of fourteen children conceived with the help of ART; including only the second set of octuplets born in the United States; has captured the attention of mainstream media and ignited public debate. Called into question are the permissible uses of reproductive technology and the role of law in regulating or promoting reproductive choice. Over 50,000 children are born annually in the United States through the use of assisted reproductive technology (ART). The Suleman case captures only a fragment of the larger debates within the larger domain of ART. This symposium will attempt to unpack ART from the margins to its center. In particular, interrogating race, class, and sexuality.
