COURSE DESCRIPTION:In this course, we will look at the relationships and issues generated by human reproduction. We will explore topics including: definitions of womanhood and motherhood; housework; reproductive freedom and reproductive inequalities; the role of the state in reproductive policy; the actions of medical institutions vis à vis reproduction; welfare policy; surrogacy; adoption; sex education; and childcare. We will focus chiefly on the U.S., but we will be looking at these issues cross-culturally, cross-nationally and in historical perspective.
Entries should consist of a source document (or summary of a broadcast – see below) and your comments and observations on how the source document relates to course issues. Typically, then, each separate entry will consist of the source document plus your own writing.Journal entries can be based on clippings from media – newspapers, magazines, presumably from the Internet, all properly sourced – that are relevant to course issues, with your comments (and if you still read paper newspapers and the like, you are obviously older than you look).
