40 years of assisted reproductive by Delphine Gardey technology: an anthropological and feminist perspective

In this interview, Sarah Franklin looks back on her journey, suggest- ing ways to approach the transformations that have taken place in the field of assisted reproductive technology over the past 40 years. With her fieldwork on regenerative medicine, cloning, or the repro- ductive tissue and service markets, Sarah Franklin is a key figure in the study of contemporary medical and social changes in the field of reproduction and kinship. She has followed in the foot- steps of the pioneering figures of the feminist critique of cultural anthropology and of the anthropology of technology and science: Marylin Strathern, Shulamith Firestone, and Donna Haraway. She identifies the political and scientific stakes related to the use of re- productive technologies and the transformations that have taken place in the definition of kinship. Highlighting the importance of the rights won by LGBTQ+ people, she questions the limits of these transformations through the prism of “reproductive justice.”
