From the Association for Research in Mothering:

Demeter Press is seeking submissions for the edited collection

Mothering and Blogging: Practice and Theory

Deadline for Abstracts: March 1, 2007

Publication Date: Spring 2008

Editors: May Friedman, Shana L. Calixte


Critical mothering and writing about motherhood have, in the last few years, begun to engage with a new form of communication. All over the Internet, mommy bloggers are commenting on the radical act of being mothers and women within a world hostile to both of these identities. What are some of the questions posed by this new context for motherhood? What are the implications for sites of marginalization and diversity within the blogosphere? This new book by Demeter Press will seek to interrogate some of the complexities of the mamasphere through both creative and scholarly submissions. We encourage applicants from a range of experiences, in both community and academic contexts.
