This two-day conference brings together historians, demographers and other social scientists from France and Britain working in the field of reproductive politics.
The programme begins with a screening of a period drama about abortion in Vichy France. It continues with six sessions reflecting the main productive themes in the field – from abortion, contraception and family planning to assisted reproduction, pregnancy and childbirth.
Convened by Jesse Olszynko-Gryn and Caroline Rusterholz. Supported by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CRASSH) and the Wellcome Trust.
