Daisy Deomampo on Imagining Race in Transnational Surrogacy

Daisy Deomampo, Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, Fordham University 

As India’s fertility industry has attracted would-be parents from around the world, researchers have called attention to the ways in which ARTs influence changing notions of kinship. Few have focused on the particular ways in which actors construct race in their narratives of kinship. This talk pays special attention to the racial dimensions of surrogacy in India, arguing that actors rely on shifting constructions of race to make sense of and justify their participation in surrogacy arrangements.
