Two central research questions inform this study: 1 how do the knowledge and practices of international adoption medicine along with its practitioners promote or challenge the kinship identities among members of adoptive families? As a specialty focused on one particular family form, international adoption medicine provides a unique site through which the entanglement of contemporary biomedical expertise in the production of families becomes visible.
Childhood by BridgetteAlston - Issuu
Through interviews with clinicians and adoptive parents and through participant observation in an international adoption medicine clinic and conferences about adoption, I show how the specialty is a practice that aids in the formation of 21st century U. Inside and outside of the clinic, international adoption medicine and the knowledge it produces are used by adoptive families as they form themselves, negotiate what it means to be an internationally adoptive family, and produce health.
International adoption medicine, in turn, builds its expertise on the experiences and needs of adoptive families. Building on a history of the development of international adoption medicine practice, I focus on three processes key to family life: the nurturing of family feeling and cohesion, through discourse and practices of attachment, and through the caretaking and body work related to feces and toileting in which parents engage. Bringing together anthropological literatures on kinship and biomedicine with ethnographic methods, this study highlights the varied and uneven uses of biomedical knowledge, the management of risk at the level of the family, and the social processes that help constitute families.
