Hannah Gibson

Hannah is a PhD Candidate in Cultural Anthropology at Victoria University of Wellington. She is researching surrogacy in a New Zealand context, exploring the ways that intended parents and surrogates rebel against or conform to strict reproductive regulations through their everyday reproductive practices. This sits within a wider discourse about the various ways that people make families, either through medical intervention or a deliberate, oftentimes necessary step away from assisted reproductive technology. She has recently been a visiting scholar at Cambridge University with Reprosoc. Her key interests are in medical and reproductive anthropology, surrogacy, anthropology of law vis a vis kinship studies
