QT Reproduction: Queen and Transgender Use of Assisted Reproductive Technologies
Doris Leibetseder, Visiting Scholar, UC Berkeley
In this paper I present part of an allied queer-feminist and transgender ethics of reproduc-tion. I look at ARTs and how they raise challenges for transgender and queer people. My focus lies in the ways these technologies confront queer and people with normative expectations concerning biological sex, gender, sexuality, kinship relations and the right to procreate, and how this leads to medical migration. This presentation gives an overview of my new EU-funded (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions) project starting August 2017 at Uppsala University: “Towards an Inclusive Common European Framework for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART): Queer Transgender Reproduction in the Age of ART.”
Doris Leibetseder is a researcher at the University of Uppsala, Sweden in the Centre for Gender Research and a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley, CSMTS (Center for Science, Technology, Medicine and Society).
