Synopsis

Maternal research is a rapidly expanding, multi-disciplinary form of scholarship. Prior to second wave feminism most motherhood literature was written from a male perspective. This literature focused on telling mothers how to practice mothering without acknowledging the expertise of the mothers themselves. Research on motherhood as it is experienced in all its facets by mothers has only emerged in recent decades. This book is aimed at expanding academic knowledge of motherhood, from a feminist perspective, looking particularly at how maternal subjectivities can be represented and theorised. When mothers themselves (academic or not) are responsible for theorisation and representation of maternal 'realities', dominant theories and representations of motherhood are radically challenged. In Theorising and Representing Maternal Realities the contributors argue that it is no longer acceptable to regard mothers as mere objects of knowledge and research. They are primarily the subjects of knowledge and research.

She is President of the Australian Association for Research on Mothering (ARM-A) formed in 2005 to encourage the academic study, and recognition, of mothering. Her doctoral thesis, Transformative Power in Motherwork: A Study of Mothering in the 1950s and 1960s, is soon to be published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. Julie Kelso is an Honorary Research Adviser in the School of English, Media Studies and Art History.
