This symposium calls for reflections on the relationship between women and productivity in its myriad forms and various situations. Focusing on this intersection across times and spaces, our goal is to address its bearing on ethics, kinship, bonding, nationality, globalization, environment etc. It invites not mere descriptions of, but attempts to grapple with the significance of how women and ideas around productivity are constructed, mutually construct each other, and are culturally (re)presented and deployed.
