Making Bodies, Persons and Families

Normalising Reproductive Technologies in Russia, Switzerland and Germany
  • By Willemijn De Jong, Olga Tkach
The far-reaching social implications of artificial fertiliation are an understudied phenomenon in Switerland and Russia. Public acceptance of in-vitro fertiliation is increasing, but to have a child with this technology, and without sex, is still often imbued with secrecy and taboos. The book sheds light on the cultural and social production of gendered bodies, persons, and families in Russia, Switerland, and Germany, with a special focus on normaliation practices.

Willemijn de Jong is a professor in the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Zurich.

Olga Tkach is a research fellow at the Centre for Independent Social Research in St. Petersburg.
