Mothering and Literacies
“The overlaps between mothering and literacy are numerous and complex. This innovative work brings together new perspectives to deepen our under- standing of mothering, literacy, and the spaces in between. Highly recommended reading for students and scholars of many fields.
—Catherine Mutti-Driscoll, University of Washington–Seattle
“Mothering and Literacies is a compelling collection of chapters that utilize a wide-ranging set of lenses through which literacy and mothering are rep- resented and problematized in both local and global contexts. Through the telling of their individual stories, women scholars in the collection contribute to larger contested stories of race, gender, sexuality, class, region, nation, and language as these intersect—sometimes collide with—how literacy has been historically conceptualized. Interdisciplinary and accessible, this unique collection invites readers to challenge historical and contemporary notions of what mothering means in the contested space of literacy practices, and it provides up-to-date analyses of digital literacies and literacy practices in global contexts.
