On 27 September Prof Marie-Andrée Jacob was a guest speaker at “Future of Kinship”, the launching event of the Contrasting and Re-Imagining Margins of Kinship Project (CoreKin) at the University of Helsinki. Marie discussed some of the ideas from her book Matching Organs with Donors: legality and kinship in transplants (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2012).

Led by Docent Antu Sorainen (Helsinki), CoreKin is a powerhouse of researchers involved in the creation of new ideas about relationships, kinship, family, sexualities etc. in a number of contexts. It is funded by the Academy of Finland. For more information see:
