Race, class, and reproductive tourism in India

Over the past decade the practice of "reproductive tourism," in which prospective parents travel across national borders in order to access reproductive technologies such as IVF, gestational surrogacy, and egg donation, has flourished in India. This talk will examine the contours of this practice, illustrating how social and structural inequalities provide the framework within which people make decisions about reproductive health and wellbeing. Drawing on fieldwork conducted in India between 2008-2010, this talk will explore how actors conceive of kinship and race in the context of transnational surrogacy and transracial egg donation.
