Please share with anyone you think might be interested. We are looking for chapters for our upcoming book Performing Motherhood. Read the Call for Papers here. We only need an abstract right now; the deadline is in two days (midnight June 15th).
We seek the following in particular: 1) essays that are empirically and theoretically grounded that explore/complicate everyday life performances of the maternal; 2) creative performance texts that explore maternal agency; and 3) theoretical or research-based examinations of broad scale maternal performance, from community or global activism to the ‘performing arts’.
Check out the link above for more information. We especially are in need of Canadian authors, as the publisher contract requires at least 50% Canadian content. We will consider all authors.
