Reproductive Justice is Black feminism in motion. Tethered to its roots in radical action, we explore Black feminism, its theories, methodologies, knowledges and ways of being through the frame of birth, mothering and reproduction. In this workshop, we will encourage anthropologists, sociologists and others to be brave in their writing, methodological, citation and creative practices as we meaningfully engage with the work of Black feminism in Britain.

Workshop is open for everyone, registration required.

About the speakers:

Anna Horn is PhD student in anthropology at the Centre for Maternal and Child Health Research at City, University of London where her research investigates Black women’s experiences of group antenatal care in the UK. Additionally, Anna is a certified doula and breastfeeding counsellor with over half a decade of experience in the maternal and child health field, ranging from epidemiological research on pregnant women living with HIV to frontline work on a busy NHS infant feeding team. Special interests include: Black feminist theory, obstetric racism, abolition feminism, cultural safety and decolonisation.

Caroline Bazambanza is carrying out fieldwork for a PhD in the Department of Anthropology at the London School of Economics (LSE). Her project asks how black women’s experiences of pregnancy, birth and motherhood are shaped at the intersection of race, welfare and reproduction in London. She explores the care networks involved in black women’s reproductive lives, including midwives, obstetricians, doulas, welfare institutions, kin and others. Caroline was a member of the expert panel for the Birthrights Inquiry into Racial Injustice in Maternity Care, contributed to the LSE Covid and Care research and is currently working on a project for the NHS Race & Health Observatory (RHO).
