Collaborate with classmates in Brazil to learn about the field of Assisted
Reproduction Technologies (ART) in the U.S. and Brazil. This course looks at
conventional families created in unconventional ways to examine such topics
as sperm and egg donation, in vitro fertilization, surrogacy, reproductive
organ transplants and more. Students also consider the racial, cultural,
religious, ableist, economic, or socioeconomic contexts that influence each
in each country.
