  • Gender dynamics, sensitive issues and ethical considerations in ‘joint
           interviews’ with Dutch couples undergoing fertility treatments
    • Abstract: Trudie Gerrits
      Infertility and fertility treatments, including the use of In-Vitro Fertilization, are highly gen-dered: women are more often confronted with infertility in daily life, due to the cultural meaning of motherhood, and women also bear the major (physical) burden of treatment, even when the man is the cause of the fertility problem, which in turn affects the way women and men relate and communicate with each other during treatment trajectories. While previously most infertility studies focused on women, in the last decade the number of infertility studies including both women and men is increasing. Doing joint interviews with couples raises methodological and ethical questions, which are rarely discussed in infertility studies. In this article, I address these issues, taking as example joint interviews I did with heterosexual infertile couples, as part of an extended ethnographic study in a Dutch clinic. I discuss the advantages and disadvantages of doing joint interviews with couples facing fertility problems and argue that the joint interviews provide particularly good insight in the sensitive issues at stake in this field, which are often related to the gendered nature of infertility and its treatment. I contend that researchers should be reflexive about how joint interviews may have affected the study process and results. Further, researchers have to be aware of potential sensitive issues in joint interviews with infertile couples and ethical concerns should guide the research procedures. Suggestions to address these issues may also be useful for other areas in which couples are studied and sensitive issues are at stake.

  • The medicalization of infertility and new reproductive technologies: the
           case of infertile couples in Oran (Algeria)
    • Abstract: Aicha Benabed
      Our article examines the meaning and the representations of some couples who have resorted to reproductive technologies of medical assistance to procreation in Algeria. We explore the way in which these couples think and conceive the medicalization which applies to human begetting and reproduction, with particular emphasis on those aspects of their experience which they consider essential. Through the notion of social representations, the article shows that Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) will meet desire of child and allow women to comply with their expected role. The social pressure in favor of procreation and the medical injunction to the diagnosis made to the patients have only increased and strengthened the medicalization of reproduction.

  • Agencies and challenged stakes involving ARTs in Mozambique: Local and
           transnational aspects of access, provision and use
    • Abstract: Inês Faria
      This article focuses on challenges in access to, and the provision of, biomedical infertility treatments and assisted reproduction technologies (ARTs) in Mozambique. Based on ethno-graphic research, it shows how quests for fertility at the ground level shed light on frictions stemming from global encounters (Tsing, 2004). The latter materialised in processes of re-productive travel and attempts to offer ARTs in Mozambique, on the particularities of local medicoscapes of fertility treatment provision and access (Hörbst and Wolf, 2014), and on the ways in which fluid and negotiated environments interact and intersect within Mozambican infertile couple’s therapeutic navigations (Vigh, 2009; Faria, 2016). The article is structured in seven parts. The first three parts consist of an introduction to the methods, local stakes on reproduction and infertility in southern Mozambique, and the healthcare provision contexts involved in the research. After such introduction, the following sections present cases regarding processes of ART provision and use encompassing Mozambique and South Africa. The cases support the article’s argument regarding the interinfluence between pragmatic agencies and local stakes in ART providers’ and users’ navigations within entangled local and global medicoscapes. The final section discusses the findings presented and draws some conclusions on local challenges affecting and stemming from ARTs provision and use.

  • The medicalisation of infertility. Men’s discourse between
           marginalisation and reproduction
    • Abstract: Lia Lombardi
      Starting from the assumption that the discourses and practices related to infertility are part of the gender structure inherent in the social construction of health, this paper focuses on assisted reproductive technology (ART), and analyses, on the one hand, expert discourse and medical practices, and, on the other, patients’ experience, thus portraying infertility as a socially and culturally constructed experience. As a consequence, gender becomes a determining factor in the construction of reproductive and sexual pathology: while the male gender is mainly associated with sexuality, the female gender continues to be associated with reproduction. The emphasis on the medical and technological treatment of women’s bodies reinforces and reproduces this stereotype, as shown in patients’ narratives and in institutional discourse. The article draws on existing national and international literature and on secondary data from the Italian Assisted Reproductive Technology Register (IARTR), the National Statistics Institute and EUROSTAT. Men’s narratives come from different qualitative studies carried out with patients in two Italian infertility clinics and gathered on the websites of patients' associations.

  • Mapping socio-technical controversies about same-sex couples’ access to
           Assisted Reproductive Technologies in France and Portugal
    • Abstract: Catarina Delaunay
      This article seeks to map socio-technical controversies in France and Portugal over the extension of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) to same-sex couples. It focuses on controversies that, over the long term, set actors with divergent representations, interests and beliefs against each other. I approach this problem theoretically and empirically through the analysis of legislation, parliamentary debates, mass-media coverage and in-depth interviews. After introducing the article’s theoretical framework, I will briefly present the legal framing of ART in France and Portugal, which was similar until mid-2016. Despite the legalisation of same-sex marriage in France (2013) and Portugal (2010), until recently laws and public policies in both countries limited access to ART to heterosexual couples with infertility problems. I will describe the dynamics of social and legal change in both countries, comparing the breakthroughs and setbacks in France with a more linear process in Portugal that culminated in the recent adoption of non-discrimination laws concerning same-sex couples (on ART and adoption). This will involve examining public controversies surrounding the "traditional" family model (a heterosexual couple with children), listing the principles un-derlying the draft laws and exploring the reasoning conveyed by its promoters and opponents. I conclude that social transformations materialized in legal changes depend on both the degree of acceptance by society and the balance of power in national parliaments.

  • Regulation and un-regulation of LGBT reproductive and parenting rights:
           the case of Italy and Belgium
    • Abstract: Alice Sophie Sarcinelli
      The development of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) has led to new forms of child production, family reproduction and kinship practice, confronting societies with the question of whether and how to legally recognise these new family structures and kinship ties. This is the case of same-sex couples who are parents, whose reproductive strategies and family configurations are not equally regulated and recognized in different countries. This article will examine the consequences of the lack of adjustment between legislation and public policies on family organization. This question is explored by comparing two European countries, which differ radically in their approach to regulating ART and recognising same-sex family configurations: namely, Italy and Belgium. The ethnographic gaze will show that the way in which both countries regulate reproductive practices and recognise kinship ties contains ambiguities and contradictions, although to a different extent. We can then talk of reproductive tactics and kinning processes.

  • Surrogacy Arrangements: Choices and Matches between "Third Parties" and
           Italian Gay Fathers
    • Abstract: Corinna Sabrina Guerzoni
      Surrogacy is prohibited, or not recognized by law, in almost all Western European countries (Smietana, 2016). It is mantled by multiple and articulated social disconfirmation that stresses how it is surrounded by ethical issues at different levels: the commodification of bodily substances, the exploitation of women’s reproductive capabilities and so on (Gross, 2012). It has been argued that surrogacy may exploit women from a more economically disadvantaged background (Blyth, 1994) and that the women may enter into a surrogacy arrangement because of financial hardship without being fully aware of the potential risks (Brazier, 1998). If the common sense generally describes the "third parties" selection like a purchase of material goods, how do the actors involved in this process describe their experiences' Based on the research conveyed in a fertility clinic of Southern California, I will focus my attention on the reproductive choices of Italian gay couples that have used surrogacy to become fathers. If in the study of artificial reproductive technologies (ARTs) the arrangements between parties are generally analyzed only considering one part’s point of view, the ambition of this article is to show the complexity of the practice putting together all the parties involved in the reproductive collaborations: intended fathers, egg donors, surrogates and the fertility industry. The aim is to show how the choice is co-constructed throughout the course of the matching phase, by all the actors involved and by other influences that I will show below.

  • L’assistente sociale in psichiatria. Riflessioni ai margini di una
    • Abstract: Silvia Carbone
      The research is a study of two cases and have been used 15 in-depth interviews made to the social workers of different mental health services in Messina and Agrigento. Research is moving along a path of inductive and exploratory. It has tried understanding the characteristics of the social worker’s job. They were examined by public psychiatric services of the Departments of Mental Health of Messina and Agrigento. The aim of this paper is to reflect on the close relationship between social workers and other professionals in the mental health care of public facilities, such as psychiatrists. The intention is to respond to the need to examine the interaction of this professional group and better understand the different path by which you can keep autonomy and/or negotiate professional position, especially in relation to other professions medical sector. We have chosen to focus on the social worker’s role in psychiatry because it is the key figure of the present socio-health integration process. This has given rise to numerous challenges related to building and strengthening its social identity-professional.

  • Riflessioni in merito alla rivelazione del coming-out tardivo di uno dei
    • Abstract: Barbara Gualco, Federica Guerrini, Edoardo Orlandi, Regina Rensi
      This paper comes by a consideration about a psychological Court Appointed Expert, requested on 2009 by the Florence Court, in determining the best interests of the child following the late coming out of one of parents. The
      Authors propose a reflection on the changes of recent years in the directives based on scientific research and reverberating on the possibility of procreation, custody and adoption of children by homosexual subjects. The
      Authors contrast the literature on the possible influence of the homosexual parenting on offspring, the theories about the possible retention of pathogenicity of any familiar secret and finally, they discuss and integrate the scientific guidelines orienting the menagement of Court Appointed Expert.

  • La salute delle persone senza dimora:una sfida per l’integrazione
    • Abstract: Anna Zenarolla
      Health is a serius and complex issue in the context of homelessness. Nevertheless, in Italy it receives little attention and there are few and fragmentary available data about health conditions of homeless people. The article aims to highlight the relevance of health problems in homeless people and the importance of addressing them with an integrated approach oriented to the recovery and the empowerment of the homeless, as proposed by the innovative model of Housing First.
