Contraception across Cultures: Technologies, Choices, Constraints

By Andrew Russell; Elisa J. Sobo et al. | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

The majority of chapters in this volume have been developed from papers originally presented at a two-day international conference ‘Changing Contraceptives: Technologies, Choices and Constraints’ held at University College Stockton (since renamed ‘University of Durham, Stockton Campus’) from 12–14 September 1996. Our thanks are due to the Mellon Foundation in New York, and the Overseas Development Administration (now the Department for International Development) and the Simon Population Trust in London, for their generous financial support for the conference, participants at the conference for their camaraderie and insightful comments, and to the staff at University College Stockton for their hospitality. We are particularly grateful to Shirley Ardener, founder and previous director of the Centre for CrossCultural Research on Women at Queen Elizabeth House, Oxford, and editor of the series of which this book is a part, for her enthusiasm and support both for the conference and this book. As reviewer for the series, Anne Coles gave very helpful comments on individual chapters, and contributors worked with diligence and commitment to complete their work within a tight timeframe. We would also like to express our thanks to Kathryn Earle and the staff at Berg Publishers for their advice and alacrity, and to members of the Centre for the Study of Contraceptive Issues and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Durham whose intellectual interest in this project has helped keep it on track. A number of employers are represented amongst the contributors to this book. However, the views expressed within it are those of the individuals concerned and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of their employers.

Royalties from the sale of this book will be shared between the Centre for Cross-Cultural Research on Women and the Centre for the Study of Contraceptive Issues.
