Explores the competing interests in bodies, body parts, and reproductive functions, materials, and products in various contexts ranging from marriage and cadaver selling to prostitution and gestational surrogacy and examines the tensions between the legal regulation, protection, and infringement upon self-possession and the individual's interest in bodily integrity and autonomy. The seminar will be organized around four major themes: historical and theoretical implications of law, society and self-possession, bodies, and body parts and reproduction. The materials and readings in each section will be drawn from a wide variety of disciplines in order to give students the widest possible lens to consider these complex issues.
