This talk will explore findings from an ISRF-funded fellowship on fertility, austerity and social reproduction. Reproduction represents a considerable concern in contemporary Europe, where an accelerated drop in birth rates has been noted following the Global Financial Crisis, especially where austerity policies have been vigorously imposed. However, few studies have explored everyday, lived experiences of this phenomena. This short talk will introduce themes for consideration - including (non)reproduction, nothingness, default and deferral - to highlight the knottiness of social reproduction, reproductive rights, austerity and family futures.
Sarah Marie Hall is Reader in Human Geography at the University of Manchester, and a member of the Morgan Centre. Her research interests revolve around everyday life in times of economic change, social reproduction and relationships, and feminist methods and praxis.
