In keeping with the notion of reproductive governance, we propose in this thematic issue to discuss how, in different historical and geopolitical configurations, actors (individuals, experts, collectivities, institutions) employ moral, legislative, economic, political and social mechanisms to mold sentiments and behaviors traditionally associated with the notions of family and kinship. This approach includes contributions from classical anthropology, but also benefits from more recent lines of analysis – coming from feminist, post-colonialist, gay and lesbian, and science and technology studies – that evoke circumstantial forms of relatedness involved in the “intimate” spheres of family relations, sentiments of identity and belonging, and reproductive behavior. Our aim is to bring together recent ethnographic studies focused on theoretical and methodological issues in different national and international contexts that consider, for example: plural family forms and relations of interdependence in everyday care; parenthood, siblingship, substances and processes that compose family ties; public policies and modes of institutional administration that affect sexual and reproductive practices; memory and transgenerational transmission; new reproductive technologies; stratified reproduction and reproductive justice.
