The Ethics of Adoption in the 21st Century

I’m attending this conference on the 14th of this month. It looks promising. I recommend it and hope that it does bring a broader approach to the traditional adoption discourse.

Here are a few topics that will be discussed:

Racial Politics and the “Business” of Domestic Private Adoption

Relinquishment Hindsight: What We Wish the Professionals Had Told Us

Conceptualizing the Ethics of Transracial Adoption: Colonial Imperative, Reconciliation, and Anti-Oppressive Framework

Let’s NOT Talk About IT: White Privlege and Racism in Transracial Adoption
