We are a network of scholars in Africa working on a research agenda which re-imagines the ways in which reproduction and caring for children are connected to experiences and imaginings of the future.
The project of re-imagining reproduction explores the ways in which biological and social reproduction are connected to ideas of care in both the present and the future. We conceive of reproduction as being situated in a multiplicity of meanings, practices, and technologies aimed to preserve and nurture individual and collective life. Our vision is to:
- develop a research agenda that interrogates the diversity of biological and social reproduction practices on the continent from an African perspective,
- support and nurture a cohort of researchers who can take this research agenda forward as they develop their careers.
By working on the African continent, we investigate of the country-specific and regional variations, by which people are re-imagining reproduction and kinning practices.
