PAST EVENTS

2-24 November 2021: The IVF Experience

Four one-hour workshops took place across November. These free workshops were designed for future, past and current IVF patients to participate in a conversation about fertility treatment, patient choice and decision-making, and embryo/medical imaging in IVF. The research team also shared some research findings. Sarah Norcross from the Progress Educational Trust hosted the first two events and Natalie Silverman from The Fertility Podcast hosted the second two.

See reports on the first and second workshops here and here.

Online Panel Discussion: Visions of Reproduction 

Our first public engagement event took place in November 2020 after a series of cancellations earlier in the year. This online event was entitled Visions of Reproduction: The Making and Meaning of Reproductive Imaging and it brought together sociologists, historians and artists who spoke about their work on this theme. We are also delighted to have partnered with the Fertility Podcast founder Natalie Silverman, who moderated the event and produced an episode of The Fertility Podcast.
