Upcoming Events

Navigating Reproduction After Dobbs

Thursday, September 29 at 3 p.m. ET

The Dobbs decision was shocking if not surprising, particularly in the context of movements to make abortion care accessible elsewhere around the world. In the United States, more than half of states are enforcing or enacting bans and restrictions that are severe and extreme. This is a moment requiring the deeper and broader perspectives of anthropologists working in reproduction. This roundtable features contributors to The Routledge Handbook on Reproduction and Anthropology speaking on how changes in US law and policy are affecting the local communities where they work and the global landscape of reproduction. Drawing from their research, they also discuss sources of insight and inspiration in the continuing struggle for reproductive justice.

Educational Gag Orders and Anthropology in Higher Education
Thursday, September 15

Educational gag orders -- legislative restrictions on the freedom to learn and teach -- have been passed by state legislatures around the country with alarming speed. These bills targeting higher education, seeking to silence the core anthropological topics of race, gender, and their function in culture and society, are part of a sustained political assault on the part of state legislators. Join us for a presentation from PEN America on the landscape of gag orders and other legislative threats to public education. Following this presentation, you will hear from a panel of anthropologists who can provide perspective on how these issues impact their work. Attendees are encouraged to participate in a Q&A session.
