We're excited to kickstart our winter writing seminar with this powerful group. This project brings feminist scholars with wide-ranging expertise to collaboratively theorize across national cases toward an analysis of reproductive politics in expressions of what we have been calling “reproductive righteousness.” This seminar allows us to test how our hypothesis about the centrality of reproductive politics within right-wing movements manifests in particular examples of moral border-making, familiar dogmas, redemptive orders, etcetera. Rather than birds-eye-view analyses of what’s happening in a given national context, we are keen to examine particular and localized ways reproduction is centered in right-wing nationalism, e.g., in political rhetoric of particular leaders, political imagery, cultural narratives, social movement strategies, law and policies, among others. The details, we believe, will provide the bases for our co-thinking and co-theorizing. Thus, we hope in our work together to consider the particularities and similarities, across diverse regions, towards a coherent theorization of reproductive politics in right-wing extremism today.
