Demeter Press is seeking submissions for an edited collection entitled
"New Maternalisms": Tales of Motherwork
(Dislodging the Unthinkable)
Editors: Dr. Roksana Badruddoja,
Dr. Maki Motapanyane
Deadline for Abstracts: February 15, 2015
The purpose of this collection lies in focusing on "new maternalisms" by exploring "motherwork" or the invisible labor of caregiving in our everyday lived experiences as wo/men, hence including mothers, fathers, and caretakers and our communities. Here, the anthology serves to deconstruct motherhood by highlighting and dislodging it from maternal ideology, the socially-constructed "good mom" (read as "sacrificial mom") and feminized hegemonic discourse. The objective of the edited volume, then, is to critically explore how wo/men experience "motherwork," what "motherwork" means to us, and how "motherwork" impacts and is impacted by the communities in which we live. This involves contesting dominant ways of thinking about motherhood.
Abstracts: 500 words. Please include a 50-word biographic note.
Deadline for abstracts is February 15, 2015
Accepted papers of 4000-5000 words (15-20 pages) will be due May 1, 2015 and should conform to Chicago style.
