History of Medicine Division Seminar/Women's History Month Program

Thursday, March 25, 2010, 2-3:30pm

Lister Hill Auditorium, NLM Bldg. 38A

Bethesda, MD

"Reproductive Technologies and the Posthuman Future: Are We There Yet?"

Prof. Valerie A. Hartouni

University of California, San Diego

The hyper-anxiety over alternative reproductive innovations that only two decades ago seemed to grip the popular imagination has for the most part abated.  Such innovations nevertheless continue to disrupt and reshape ostensibly natural, thus normative, kinship arrangements as well as the legal reasoning that keep them in place.  This talk takes the recent ruling of a New Jersey court on yet another surrogacy agreement gone awry as the point of departure to consider the nature of on-going legal quandaries when new life forms and new forms of life fail to align.

All are welcome.

Note: The next history of medicine seminar will be held on Wednesday, April 14,2010 at 2-3:30pm in the NLM Visitor Center. Prof. Elizabeth W. Mellyn (University of New Hampshire) will speak on "Making Use of Melancholy: Madness, Medicine, and the Law in Early Modern Florence."
