For members working on Maternal Health, pregnancy in the context of Southeast Asian.
Most of us dare not question our pregnancy, birth or early parenthood experience for fear of seeming ungrateful, difficult or concerned with ourselves when we should be focused on our children. Most of us simply try to get on with our new lives as best we can, as soon as we can, without acknowledging the long-term impact this short but intense period is likely to have on our sense of self and our relationship with our partners and children.
Yet, some of us are artists as well as parents, sensing the urgency and possessing the skills to commit deep and complex feelings such as those originating from new parenthood to paper, paint, sculpture, poetry, film or other media, thereby rising to the challenge of translating precisely those things often left unsaid into the universal language of art and opening up the crucial debates that eventually break down barriers.
is seeking submissions for an edited collection entitled
Mothers and Daughters
Editors: Dannabang Kuwabong,
Janet MacLennan, and Dorsía Smith Silva
Deadline for Abstracts: April 30, 2015
This anthology will explore the multifaceted connections between mothers and daughters. We welcome submissions that analyze new fields of inquiry in this area, examining discourses about mothers and daughters through academic writing, narrative essays, and creative work. We specifically encourage offerings that address the identity and experiences of mothers and daughters from within an interdisciplinary framework, which includes cultural, biological, socio-political, relational and historical perspectives. Therefore the uniqueness of this collection revolves around a fluidity in blending not just work from across academic disciplines, but also the forms in which this work is presented: academic inquiry and critique as well as creative and narrative explorations.
