ChapterFortpflanzung und Geschlecht 4. Geschlechtersoziologische Kontextualisierungen von Fortpflanzung
Reproduction as the 'most natural' phenomenon in the world is often used as the reason for the gender gap and serves as justification for the hierarchically-structured relations between genders. Using the sociology of Pierre Bourdieu as a basis, Daniela Heitzmann asks how this supposedly natural fact can be understood as a social phenomenon in order to analyse its close connection to womanhood, on the one hand, and the rather loose relation to masculinity, on the other. In doing so, she develops a concept of generative practice that leads into a research programme on the genesis of presentations of generativity which particularly highlights the role of the social construction aspect of sociology.
