    Call For Papers - CFP

    This conference aims at exploring motherhood and its diverse cultural representations, while interrogating the ways in which such representations impact on individual and collective experiences of motherhood. Thus, we attempt at examining motherhood both as a personal experience and as an institution, as well as observing the nuances involved in the interaction between both.

    The conference seeks to encourage dialogue around cultural concepts of motherhood by observing the cultural roles that are given to maternal figures, the perspectives from which this experience is approached, and how these engage in dialogue with other current discourses such as politics, law and medicine.

    By questioning traditional mother roles, challenging the myths and taboos associated with the reproductive body, and establishing dialogues with the personal and communal experience of motherhood, we hope to inspire more open and realistic discourses around a figure that is not only fundamental in our life experience but also constitutes one of the basic pillars that sustain our societies.

    We invite papers on (but by no means limited to) the following areas:

    Representations of motherhood in literature, cinema and TV

    Mother as a Myth: motherhood in art and philosophy

    Motherhood and law

    The mother’s body and the body politic: the political instrumentalisation of motherhood

    Motherhood and medicine: medicalising and pathologising women’s bodies

    Surrogate motherhood and alternative forms of parenting

    Motherhood and gender roles

    Mothers under patriarchy: motherhood and ideology

    The cons of motherhood: delaying, regretting or rejecting motherhood

    The conference is addressed to academics, researchers and professionals who are interested in the conference topic.
