Reproductive Futures: Reproductive Choices? Event

Date:
4 - 5 July 2016
Venue:
Jurys Inn in Southampton (Charlotte Place, SO14 0TB)

Event details

Kindly supported by the Socio-Legal Studies Association and the Centre for Health Ethics and Law at the University of Southampton.

This meeting is designed to bring together academics working on human reproduction from legal and ethical perspectives, in order to consider and reflect on the next era in this field. The key objective of the meeting is to facilitate the cross-fertilisation of ideas on issues that are currently on the reproductive radar, broadly conceived. These ideas will include both a re-engagement with established ‘traditional’ debates (in light of recent developments), and ‘new’ challenges posed by emergent technologies. Amongst others, topics include surrogacy, abortion, and assisted reproductive technologies.

Programme to follow soon.

This workshop will be held from lunchtime on Monday 4th of July to lunchtime on Tuesday 5th July 2016, at Jurys Inn in Southampton (Charlotte Place, SO14 0TB). There will also be a workshop dinner on Monday 4th July. Attendance is free (including lunch both days and the dinner), but numbers are limited. Recommendations for accommodation are available on request.
