Mothers, Inc.: The Racial Politics of Transnational Surrogacy

Sujata Moorti is Professor of Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies at Middlebury College. She has published extensively on media representations of gender, sexuality and diasporic formations. She is currently completing a manuscript on iFeminism where she teases out the ways in which social media are altering understandings of feminism around the world. In this manuscript she explores the transnational circuits of activism and knowledge production that social media technologies engender, altering our conceptions of gender and agency. She is completing two other monographs on gendered violence. She is the author of Color of Rape: Gender, Race and Democratic Public Spheres (SUNY Press, 2002) and has co-edited Global Bollywood: The Travels of Hindi Song and Dance (University of Minnesota Press, 2008) and Local Violence, Global Media: Feminist Analyses of Gendered Representations (Peter Lang, 2009). She teaches courses on feminist cultural studies, diasporic media studies, and postcolonial theory.

Prof. Moorti will examine the visual culture that has emerged around the transnational surrogacy industry located in India. Moving beyond the ethical and moral dilemmas posed by the phenomenon this presentation centers on the rich and dense media culture that has emerged around this phenomenon: reproscape. An analysis of these images helps us understand how the different women involved in the surrogacy industry (e.g., surrogates, agents, egg donors, prospective parents and doctors) are each differently located in discourses of citizenship and equally implicated in transnational labor circuits. Informed by critical race theories and postcolonial feminist scholarship the presentation unpacks the racial politics of this industry.
