Les politiques de reproduction en France et en Grande-Bretagne

Reproductive politics in France and Britain


5 September 2016, 19:30 - 7 September 2016, 17:00

GR06/07 Seminar Room, Faculty of English, 9 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DP

This two-day conference brings together historians, demographers and other social scientists from France and Britain working in the field of reproductive politics.

In recent decades, scholars have explored the politics of reproduction in the twentieth century from different national perspectives. It is now well established under what circumstances and with which purposes laws regulating reproduction have been implemented. More recently, individual reproductive behaviours have been made central to historical understandings of long-term demographic change. Richly detailed and contextualized studies are becoming commonplace in the field. These have generated new insights and complicating too the linear narrative of reproductive emancipation that has dominated since the 1970s. While much has been learned about the legal, social and intimate aspects of reproduction in France and Britain, less has been done to understand the differences and similarities between these two countries.
