He is now leading a group assessing the value of art therapy for sub-fertile women.
Week 3: Childbirth, midwives and medical men, 1700-1900
This is the primary professional organization representing Canadian scientists, nurses, counselors and clinicians working in the field of sub-fertility. Her research focuses on the British long eighteenth century, with a particular emphasis on gender. She has ongoing research interests in masculinity, print culture both visual and textual , material culture, and what might be termed the more 'impolite' aspects of the eighteenth century. She has just completed two studies of ritual objects and masculinity, and is now working on two books: the first about men and the home in the eighteenth century, the second on using material culture in History.
Lianne McTavish is a Professor in the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta, where she offers courses in early modern visual culture and critical museum theory. She taught for ten years at the University of New Brunswick before moving to the University of Alberta in Her interdisciplinary research has centred on early modern French medical imagery, and has included articles in Social History of Medicine , Medical History , and a monograph, Childbirth and the Display of Authority in Early Modern France Her recent work in this area analyzes representations of cure and convalescence in France, , focusing on royal bodies at rest after giving birth, Kingly bodies recuperating from illness, religious bodies receiving miraculous cures, and unborn bodies at risk of becoming ill.
As an associate curator at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery from , Lianne has curated and written the catalogues for a number of exhibitions of contemporary art. Her research focuses on digital culture and its history in 18th-century English literature and science. He holds CIHR grants to investigate concepts such as "health" and "disease", particularly as they relate to preimplantation genetic diagnosis and prenatal genetic testing, and to study the use of theatre for citizen deliberation for health-policy development, particularly regarding reproductive and genetic technology, and grants from Genome Canada and other funding agencies.

The long-term objective of Dr Singh's research program is to develop and use the bovine model for study of ovarian function and oocyte competence in humans. During his PhD program at the University of Saskatchewan , he identified specific biochemical, morphologic and cytoplasmic markers of follicle health and investigated the role of follistatin in ovarian function.
In collaboration with Dr Adams and Pierson, he used the bovine model to document that ultrasound image characteristics of the corpus luteum and ovarian follicles can be used effectively to ascribe their endocrine and functional status. Non-invasive nature of these studies lead to global interest in this technique because of their potential for clinical use in women.
After joining the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in August , he have developed strong interest in development competence of oocytes contained in the ovarian follicles.
His research program is is directed towards i finding markers of oocytes competence, ii studying effect of maternal aging on oocyte competence and iii investigating role of hormonal treatments on developmental potential of oocytes. Direct and non-invasive visualization of living microscopic structures such as cumulus-oocyte-complexes and follicle wall with the ultrasound biomicroscope and confocal microscopy are his areas of his special interest.

Imagining Reproduction in Science and History. Roger Pierson, University of Saskatchewan Dr. The book is least convincing when it strays into political propaganda, most persuasive when it explores the world of obstetricians in depth.
Much of her story is not new. Indeed it was she who first revealed the remarkable tale of Mary Toft, the rabbit-breeder of Godalming, which was a landmark in in the discussion of anomalous reproduction, in a celebrated 'Gender and History' article in The case is given a chapter, the full, coherent examination it deserves.

Adrian Wilson's important monograph established the significance of William Smellie and William Hunter in the making of man-midwifery. Cody takes the discussion of their role in Georgian medical circles much further by investigating their social attitudes as well technical advances such as use of the forceps.
Smellie's Treatise on Midwifery, Cody shows, was a runaway hit as a textbook but it also indicated a new doctor-patient relationship. By the s, it becomes clear, medical education in London had changed out of all recognition, through the work of a group of men who had confidently captured the field of obstetrics.
They won over both the wealthy and the poor. Indeed, Cody goes so far as to argue that the new lying-in hospitals, created with their benevolent support, 'articulated a new vision of how pregnancy, birth and parenting should be managed among the respectable poor. Close analysis of a wide range of materials brings Cody to the conclusion that by the s British men, and Scots were crucial in this, had established their intellectual and professional authority over sex and birth.
They could claim, through reason and research, to have founded modern reproductive biology. Women were thereby put in a biological straightjacket which had immense implications for their Victorian lives.
