Reproduction and family planning in Australia: symposium

This full day symposium asks timely questions about reproduction and family formation in Australia. New medical reproductive technologies, the transnational flow of reproductive tissues, and cross-border reproductive travel are often researched as distinct issues.
 
The aim of this symposium is to raise questions about how aspects of reproduction might be interrogated in transdisciplinary fashion. How can understanding of reproduction and family formation be enriched and informed by teams working across ANU Colleges?
