About this title:

Synopsis:

In the thirty years since the first “test-tube baby,” in-vitro fertilization and other methods of reproductive assistance have become a common aspect of family life and medicine in developed nations—and, increasingly, throughout the world. This collection brings together ethnographic studies of how these reproductive technologies are deployed across a wide variety of nations and cultures, taking special account of how they are linked to aspirations towards modernity—and how they contribute to an ongoing reconfiguration of the boundaries of knowledge and human agency. The resulting volume offers both a current snapshot of the cultural state of reproductive technologies and a plethora of provocative questions for the future.

About the Author:

Maren Klotz is a senior lecturer in the Department of European Ethnology at the Humboldt University Berlin. She is coeditor of Reproductive Technologies as Global Form: Ethnographies of Knowledge, Practices, and Transnational Encounters.

Book Description Frankfurt am Main, New York: Campus, 2012. Kartoniert. Remissionsstempel. Condition: Sehr gut. 386 Seiten, mit graphischen Darstellungen. Illustrierter Originalkartonband, Einband mit leichten Lagerspuren, ansonsten in nahezu neuwertigem Zustand. Remissionsstempel im Unterschnitt. - Seit vor 30 Jahren das erste »Reagenzglas- Baby« der Welt geboren wurde, haben sich In- vitro-Fertilisation (IVF) und andere Technologien »assistierter « Reproduktion weltweit verbreitet. Behandlung Suchende, Spenderinnen von Eizellen, Samenbanken und Ärzte agieren über nationale Grenzen hinweg, nicht selten entlang der Wohlstandsbruchlinien zwischen Ost und West und Nord und Süd. Die Autoren zeichnen in ethnografischen Studien die große Vielfalt lokaler Anwendungen von Reproduktionstechnologien auf vier Kontinenten nach und folgen gleichzeitig den transnationalen Routen des Medizinmarktes. Die Reproduktionsmedizin steht dabei beispielhaft für die biotechnologische Globalisierung. In the thirty-five years since the first "test-tube baby," in-vitro fertilization and other methods of reproductive assistance have become a common aspect of family life and medicine in affluent nations and, increasingly, throughout the world. How do persons seeking treatment, donors, and medical experts make use of these reproductive technologies? How in crossing borders between nations do they manage to evade legal and bioethical regulations? And how do they make sense of these new modes of making kinship against the backdrop of diverse worldviews and social settings? In bringing together a wide array of ethnographic studies this volume offers both a current snapshot of the complexity and diversity of local or national IVF-cultures and of emerging transnational forms of mobility, competition, inequality and collaboration. Reproductive technologies as global form refer to the simultaneity of replicating standards and creating differences, of displacements and reappropriations, raising a plethora of provocative questions for the future.
