Theme Our 2013-14 seminar and film series will focus on the theme ‘Communicating Reproduction’.
We aim to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations by critically engaging with norms and assumptions that influence how reproduction is constructed and communicated, both within academic institutions and in broader society.
This year we will be inviting prominent speakers from a wide range of backgrounds, including artists, clinicians, sociologists, scientists, historians and novelists, to enrich our understanding of the many nuanced and multi-faceted aspects of reproduction and to expand our ability to communicate effectively across disciplinary boundaries.
The idea for CIRF grew from the conversations of a group of graduate students and faculty from various departments, including HPS, the Centre for Family Research, Social Anthropology, and SPS, who wished to create opportunities for productive interdisciplinarity.
Our group has been active for more than 8 years and has expanded to include researchers from a wide range of faculties and departments.

CIRF aims to provide a forum in which researchers from all disciplines and backgrounds can come together to communicate and develop new ideas and form collaborations around a common interest in reproduction.
