M.O.M. Conference 2014


Making Motherhood Visible ; Rewriting Narratives of Contemporary Mothers  - 
Keynote Speaker: Andrea O’Reilly
ATTENDANCE TO THE CONFERENCE IS OPEN TO ALL
Drawing on Andrea O’Reilly’s and Barbara Katz Rothman’s notions of patriarchal motherhood, the Museum of Motherhood asks, what factors, past and present, inform our new ways of understanding motherhood, fatherhood, and notions of family? The conference organizers encourage submissions that provide critical insights into mothering, fathering, and family issues; that draw direct links between theories and/or research findings; or that offer practical approaches to issues facing contemporary mothers and families. Following in the footsteps of both O’Reilly and Rothman, the overarching goal of this conference is to provide an environment to explore new ideas and approaches for tackling issues that concern mothers as well as important others who fill a care giving role in the family.
