ReproNetwork, an interdisciplinary group of researchers who study reproduction, invites submissions for the 2015 Adele E. Clarke Book Award. This award is for an outstanding socio-cultural study of reproductive processes, experiences, technologies, politics, and/or practices published in 2014. Consistent with the composition of the ReproNetwork community, the prize committee welcomes submissions by historians, sociologists, anthropologists, public intellectuals, activists, and others.
Initiated by the ReproNetwork community in 2014, the Adele E. Clarke Book Award will be presented each fall to honor a groundbreaking work judged to be the most potentially influential contribution to scholarship on reproduction. Influence may reflect the book’s quality, timeliness, innovation, and/or overall impact on the field of reproductive studies.
