IMCI Speaker Series on Gestation and Storytelling

This event is part of the IAS Annual Theme 2023-24 - Gestation: Bodies, Technologies, Ecologies, Justice.

The Institute for Media and Creative Industries and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Loughborough University are pleased to invite you for a Speaker Series on Gestation and Storytelling.

During this great round of conversations, three great women will share their experience about how stories about gestation, reproduction, birth, and parenting are transmitted through generations and communities, framing the way people deal with carrying and caring life. They will also discuss how mainstream channels (media, health systems, government, NGOs etc) proliferate stories about gestation that help (or not) the situation in the community level.

Our speakers will be Mpume Gumede from South Africa, Lindsay Barnes from India, and Åsa Virdi Kroik from Sweden.

The session will take place on May 16th, 10am to 12pm (London time), in person at Loughborough University London in room LDN.3.23
(3 Lesney Avenue, Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park).
