ANT 319 - Contradictions in Contemporary Motherhood: Culture, Biomedicine, Political Economy

Contemporary mothering happens at the crossroads of conflicting forces and discourses.

Readings will situate the topic in its historical, rhetorical, and cross-cultural contexts and will also explore the globalized networks of migration that increasingly affect motherhood.
