CIRF’s Interdisciplinary Workshop on Reproduction is about showcasing research related to reproduction that is taking place at the University of Cambridge. This year, our eighth, we have a great selection of speakers coming from a number of different disciplines, such as Sociology, Classics, Law, English, and Psychology. The Interdisciplinary Workshop on Reproduction gives both speakers and members of the audience the opportunity to make interdisciplinary research connections, to share ideas, and to begin new collaborations.

 

 
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 wish to create opportunities for productive interdisciplinarity. All Cambridge researchers are welcome to join CIRF, to attend our events, and to suggest new developments and activities. Whether you just want to join our email list, or whether you wish to get more involved with the initiation and organisation of reproduction related events, we would love to hear from you.
