KINSHIP & REPRODUCTION
THIS SPECIAL ISSUE edited by Ulrika Dahl together with guest editor Jenny Gunnarsson Payne offers new perspectives on the timely themes of queer kinship and reproduction and is drawn from the workshop Reproducing Kinship, Queering Reproduction: Familial Bonds in the Age of Assisted Reproductive Technologies organized in Stockholm in 2013. The articles and essays by anthropologists, sociologists, and media scholars critically engage and extend the so far largely Anglo-American dominated field of queer kinship and reproduction studies. Presenting empirical data from case studies in Finland, Russia, Greece, and Sweden, topics such as lesbian motherhood, queer will-writing, gay men and transnational surrogacy, queer biology, and kinship theory are addressed
