Invitation to register
for the conference, "Reproducing China: Childbirth, One Child, and
Beyond"




This conference brings together established scholars
and junior researchers to present their cutting-edge work on the different
facets of reproductive science and medicine in modern China. Taking up the
continual critical interest in appropriations and disseminations of scientific
theories and medical expertise, we investigate the movement and circulation of
expertise, personnel, and material culture related to sexuality, reproduction,
fertility, childbirth and population between China and different parts of the
world. We want to understand how European and American scientific discourses
interacted with Chinese discourses, and how so-called "indigenous"
ideas concerning sex and reproduction became defined, incorporated or excluded.
We analyse some of the long-range networks of historical and contemporary
actors engaged in projects of translation and popularisation. In sum, the
conference aims to produce not only new scholarship on China , but
simultaneously new ideas on the mechanisms and dynamics of transmissions of
reproductive knowledges around the world. Themes covered include: sexology and
history of the body in China ;
conceptualisations of fertility and Chinese medicine; childbirth and
reproductive technologies; population policies and demographic studies.
