Reproductive Timing. Biographical orientations in the context of reproductive medicine.

This sub-project examines how normative and practical orientations with regard to timing - the temporal planning and realisation of becoming a parent - are presented in relation to the possibilities of reproductive medicine. The view of medical experts from gynaecology and reproductive medicine is of particular interest.

The overall aim of this project is a sociological-social psychological analysis of the norms of temporality in relation to ideas of a 'good life', ambivalent time-related optimisation imperatives as well as the consequences and meanings for parenthood and reproduction.
