Contemporary mothering happens at the crossroads of conflicting forces and discourses. This seminar frames motherhood as a window on women’s changing rights and status, and as a fruitful topic for feminist theorizing. Readings will situate the topic in its historical, rhetorical, and cross-cultural contexts and will also explore the globalized networks of migration that increasingly affect motherhood.
