CALL FOR PAPERS

In celebration and commemoration of the recent launching of
the Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement (MIRCI)
and its first conference in Europe and the 35th Anniversary of
Adrienne Rich's Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution
MIRCI with CRIA – Centre for Research in Anthropology, Portugal –
(inter-institutional centre based in four universities – ISCTE, FCSH-UNL, FCT-UC, UM)
are hosting an international conference on

Mothering and Motherhood in the 21st Century: Research and Activism
February 17-19, 2011, Lisbon, Portugal

We welcome submissions from scholars, students, activists, and workers, artists, mothers and others who work or research in this area. Cross-cultural, historical and comparative work is encouraged. We encourage a variety of types of submissions including academic papers from all disciplines, workshops, creative submissions, performances, storytelling, visual arts and other alternative formats.
Building upon the Rich's crucial distinction between mothering and motherhood the conference will explore how scholars and activists challenge normative motherhood and develop new experiences, practices, identities, meanings, activism, ideologies and policies for
empowered mothering.
