Feminist Perspectives, in collaboration with the Gender Studies Network at King's College, London, is excited to announce the ‘Abortion at the Borderlines’ conference. 

This conference is taking place online.

The topic of this conference is now more urgent than ever. With the overturning of Roe v. Wade in June 2022 abortion has been catapulted to the centre of the Western political stage. While the United States, as well as European countries such as Poland, have been experiencing a rollback of abortion rights, Latin America has seen a transnational momentum towards the decriminalisation of abortion, most recently in Argentina, Mexico, and Colombia. With ideas, movements, people, and pharmaceuticals traversing the many borderlines around abortion, it has become more vital than ever to think about abortion at (and transgressing the borderlines of) nation-states, legality, and social acceptability. Abortion at the Borderlines presents current research on transgressive abortion politics, practices and imaginations – be they spatial, social, legal or cultural.

Code of Conduct: Abortion at the Borderlines is committed to being a pro-abortion, trans-inclusive and anti-racist space. We expect attendees to join us in this commitment.
