CFP: NWSA November 13 – 16, 2014
Puerto Rico Convention Center San Juan, Puerto Rico
Conference Subtheme: Love and Labor
Roundtable: Mothering, Love, and Labor
The Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement (MIRCI) invites abstracts for participation in a 4-6-person roundtable at the National Women’s Studies Association Conference in November 2014.
Building on the recent publication by Demeter Press of Counting on Marilyn Waring: New Advances in Feminist Economics, this MIRCI sponsored roundtable seeks brief papers examining new approaches to thinking about mothering, labor, and economics. Questions central to feminist economics such as what counts as labor, what kinds of labor are valued, and what labor and laborers are in/visible resonate strongly within contemporary mothering studies.
The roundtable aims at representing a variety of disciplinary and practitioner perspectives. Global, activist, and intersectional approaches are especially welcome.
To present at this conference one must be a 2014 member of MIRCI and NWSA.
Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words and a 50-word bio to Jocelyn Stitt firstname.lastname@example.org by February 14, 2014.
