Brief Description:

The Reproductive Righteousness Project is a new initiative launched by ReproSoc to explore the ways in which families, fertility and reproduction have become increasingly important discursive moral devices through which right wing populist leaders invoke the threat of national, social and cultural decline. From Trump’s “America first” to Kaczyński’s “there is only one Poland,” expressions of ethno-nationalism, right-wing populism, and authoritarianism are increasingly central to right-wing authoritarian regimes. This project brings together feminist scholars with wide-ranging expertise to collaboratively theorize expressions of what we call “reproductive righteousness.”

On June 30th, the Reproductive Righteousness Project is launched with a Symposium called “Reproductive Righteousness and the Alt-Right State: An International Feminist Symposium”, featuring feminist scholars from around the world who will offer a comparative discussion of this important topic.
