The Art of ART: Writing about Fertility
Just as scientific developments have pushed at the limits of human fertility, writers and artists have taken up the challenge of exploring what these discoveries do to our perceptions of being human. This lecture explores the poets, writers, and visual artists who think about conception at a cellular level. How has this changed our perception of family? What are the new stories we tell about our bodies?
