From India with Love

Troublesome Citizens of Fertility Travel

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

This essay inquires into how motherhood and citizenship are reinvented and performatively negotiated in cases of transnational surrogacy. One transnational surrogacy case reveals the workings of cultural and biological fundamentalism both. The case illustrates how transnational surrogacy produces troublesome new citizens and illegitimate mothers. Theoretically, the essay engages performance studies and feminist scholarship on the cyborg to conclude that new reproductive technology, most notably practices such as transnational surrogacy, reconceptualizes both citizenship and motherhood.
