1. Marginalized Motherhoods in the Americas

Description:  Through the works of seven women writers in the Americas, this reading group centers on ideas of motherhood and mothering, and their potential for a critique of systems of patriarchal violence, racism, classism, and extra-activism. This Reading group is organized by Regina Pieck (Graduate Student, Hispanic Studies), Tess Renker (Graduate Student, Hispanic Studies), and Iris Montero (Professor, Hispanic Studies).
