Based in the School of Global Studies, the Centre for Cultures of Reproduction, Technologies and Health (CORTH) focuses on analyses of the intersections between cultures of human reproduction, social identities, health and technologies.
Framed by a specific interest in the processes of power and addressing health inequities, it promotes research on the social, medical, public health, legal, and moral lenses through which reproductive health is perceived, produced, concretised and articulated (for instance, through new policies, engagement with new technologies, new forms of social relations in reproduction). With its unique focus on cultural-ethnographic perspectives, the centre facilitates knowledge transfer partnerships between anthropologists, social and human scientists, health researchers, medical professionals, practitioners, legal activists and policy makers working internationally on critical issues in global maternal, sexual reproductive health (SRH), emerging technologies and health and human rights. A specific aim is to foster international dialogue on ‘Southern’ analytic models and practices.
