Protecting egg donors’ reproductive labour in Kolkata, India
Meghna Mukherjee

institutional power through interviews and participant observation. In doing so, it shows how clinics structure a financially incentivised donor market targeted at low-income women while also strategically distancing themselves from these networks of women. This neglect from the clinic – the most resourced institutional actor in the egg donation exchange – has severe consequences on the wellbeing and safety of donors, which in turn compromises their ownership over their bodily labour. The findings are organised into three sections: (i) the clinic's role in structuring the

Race as a central and ‘obvious’ choice
Rufaro Moyo

different because certainly in South Africa it was more of a legal, arbitrary definition that people made. That's why it became so problematic because they couldn't fit some people in the boxes, in the terms of what the heck race is this person (Laughs). And they tried all these ridiculous ways of trying to figure it out (Laughs). (Participant 9) The social science literature on infertility treatments or Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) has been growing since the 1980s after the

middle-class, upper-caste women's experience, or alternatively Dalit male experience, became universalised, resulting in ‘a masculinisation of dalithood and a savarnisation of womanhood’ (Rege, 2018 : 1–2; see also Rege, 1998 ). Akin to these articulations, one of our research participants, an activist from Bangalore, stated: ‘One of the things that I have been doing a lot is critiquing Indian feminists: there is a lack of connect[ion] with real life issues of marginalized women. But the fact is that they are the ones who set the agenda and basically define the

Popularising psychoanalysis, 1945–68

letter from her husband in February 1947 praising her contribution to an unspecified broadcast. 46 More definitively, on 6 February 1948 Dolto appeared on La Tribune de Paris , a national radio programme, as a participant in a debate on ‘the resurgence of juvenile delinquency’. Dolto was introduced simply as a doctor, appearing alongside the children’s author Paul Faucher (famous for the popular book series Albums du père Castor ) and a scout leader. She spoke on La Tribune de Paris again in December 1949, advising

Young women’s experiences of access to reproductive health in southern Africa

-density suburb located one kilometre from the central business district in Johannesburg, South Africa. Guided by snowball sampling, which allowed initial participants to refer me to more people, I negotiated access to Hillbrow and young women through fellow Zimbabwean women who were part of my previous study on shifting gender and sexual realities in South Africa (Batisai, 2016b ). It was through these Zimbabwean women that I first got insight into the realities of termination of pregnancy in Hillbrow and eventually negotiated access to more young women residing in the suburb

Dolto in the twenty-first century
Richard Bates

which Rose’s – Dolto’s – approach to psychology appears as a particularly ‘French’ – which in the context of the films, also means outdated and provincial – way of thinking, out of sync with modern cosmopolitan life. Even in the 1980s, at the height of her fame, Dolto was beginning to appear out of touch with the modern world. Her 1983 trip to a psychiatry conference in Fort-de-France, Martinique, proved ‘disconcerting’ to her. 3 Most of the conference participants took an ethno-psychiatric perspective, analysing the

Technologies of power and language of rights

which Saheli had then rejected. Moreover, the assurance was restricted to the inclusion and distribution of the Injectables in the public sector. The issue of the unethical trials, particularly the lack of informed consent, that the PIL had raised were not addressed. Hence the case was ‘settled’ without holding the Indian state responsible for the violation of the rights of the women participants. Thus, by accepting to withdraw the PIL without legal ruling or legal remedy on these critical issues, the opportunity that the case presented to raise

what young people knew and thought about AIDS. Researchers were allowed to visit a class at a vocational school in the northern suburbs of Berlin and conduct both a written and an informal oral survey. Participants were around twenty-three years old and described by Starke as ‘highly communicative’. When asked to freely associate and write down all the words or phrases that came to their minds that

prescriptive. While many public health assessments focused on institutional relationships and activities, surveys also illuminated varied publics who were ‘simultaneously object, participant, and audience’. 4 Looking at public health through local studies allows us to explore the construction of some of the varied publics in public health. It also illuminates grassroots negotiation of the relationships
