Biography

Jaya Keaney is a Gender Studies scholar, whose research focuses on the intersections of race, reproduction, and science and technology. Much of her work examines how understandings of racialized kinship are reproduced and reconfigured through biotechnologies, fields of scientific research, and changing reproductive forms. She is currently working on two research projects. The first explores race in donor conception and surrogacy markets, with a focus on queer family making. The second explores the implications of epigenetics research for Aboriginal communities in Australia, with a focus on understandings of intergenerational trauma and reproductive justice.
