The objective of this course is for students to think intersectionally about representations of reproductive justice issues including: reproductive rights and white-settler colonialism; women of colour organizing for reproductive justice; breastfeeding, militarization and the private/public divide; globalization and surrogacy; representations of young mothers on TV; reproductive rights and the ‘war on women’ in the US and Canada; sex-selective abortion in Canada; and reproductive technologies.

Students in this course will be asked to inquire about the ways in which reproductive bodies, health access, choice, and technologies are represented in mediated texts and cultural productions.
