Motherhood in Literature and Culture

This event celebrated the launch of Motherhood in Literature and Culture: Interdisciplinary Perspectives from Europe (Routledge). Dealing with a range of topics including pregnancy and birth, affect and ambivalence, and family and legacy, this book – edited by Gill Rye, Victoria Browne, Adalgisa Giorgio, Emily Jeremiah, and Abigail Lee Six – provokes discussion and debate about that most crucial of human activities, mothering. The volume grew out of an initiative developed at the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women’s Writing at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London.

In collaboration with Royal Holloway, University of London and the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women's Writing, Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study.
