Maternal Epistemologies of Justice: Readings from the Chicana M(other)work Anthology

Fri, Nov 15, 9:35 to 10:50am, Hilton Union Square, Floor: Tower 3, 4th Floor, Union Square 12 (LCD)

Session Submission Type: Roundtable


This roundtable will introduce the audience to The Chicana M(other)work Anthology: Porque Sin Madres No Hay Revolución (March 2019) and will offer a reading of selected chapters. This anthology is a collection of research, testimonios, and essays by Chicana and Women of Color Mother-scholars and allies who center mothering as a form of knowledge-production and transformative labor through an intersectional lens: The anthology serves to “write ourselves into existence” by unveiling radical narratives of Chicana and Women of Color mother-scholars who survive, thrive, and identify new ways of knowing justice while mothering our children, ourselves, and our communities.
