About the Course:

The course will be broken off into three parts: the biology behind reproduction, an intersectional approach to reproductive justice, and practical integration of the course materials.

The class will first explore the question,  “What is reproduction?” Further into the course, students will discuss how the above inquiry relates to justice. Other topics include: Global (In)Fertility, Disparities, Bio-Ethics of reproductive technologies, Contraceptives, Abortion/Miscarriage, Feminist Perspective(s) of the (Fe)male Body, and Reproductive Rights.

Expect this to be an eye-opening, controversial, and thought-provoking class. We welcome students from all majors and backgrounds!

Attendance Policy:

Our policy will be clarified during the first class meeting. In general, we would like students to be respectful and notify us of absences in advance.

How to Enroll:

Because this course is aimed to be heavily discussion based, we want to limit the class size to 20 students. Please email me directly if you are interested in taking the class.
