About this item

Teacher, Scholar, Mother deals with intersecting axes of power and privilege in order to advance a more productive conversation across disciplines on motherhood. "Mother" is a central figure in cultural discourse. She is a force of stability and comfort, a symbol of home and family, and the source of our earliest memories of nurturing and care. "Mother" is also a politically charged ideal. She is self-motivated and career-driven, passionate about her job, and trying to create a balance between her home and work lives. The mother-scholar contributors explore theoretical and disciplinary approaches to academic motherhood, examine critical and cultural territory associated with academic motherhood, and articulate the challenges of their dual identity.
