Life Politics: Health, Reproduction, and the Body in Mexico

April 19, 1 PM CT

2020-2021 Manuscript Development Workshop Grantee Elyse Singer

with guests Megan Crowley-Matoka and Elizabeth F.S. Roberts

The Humanities Forum at the University of Oklahoma has organized this public panel joining cultural anthropologists working in Mexico and other parts of the Americas on questions of health, the body, reproduction and bioethical concerns at the beginning and end of life. Participants will discuss their ethnographic research on addiction and environmental health in Mexico City, abortion politics in Mexico City, and organ transplant in Guadalajara, Mexico. Panelists will consider these “life debates” in the Mexican context as well as how they articulate with similar questions in the US and around the world, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
