Call for submissions
ReproNetwork, an interdisciplinary group of researchers who study reproduction, invites submissions for the 2017 Adele E. Clarke Book Award. This award is for an outstanding socio-cultural study of reproductive processes, experiences, technologies, politics, and/or practices published in 2015 or 2016.
