Leading scholars to present at reproduction and mothering conference

Leading scholars to present at reproduction and mothering conference

This fall in Toronto, the Motherhood Initiative for Research & Community Involvement (MIRCI) will host a three-day international conference on Reproduction and Mothering. The conference includes the presentation of more than 70 papers and 10 keynotes by leading scholars in the field.

The conference will take place Oct. 18 to 20 at the Pantages Hotel, 200 Victoria St., Toronto, and will include an embedded conference on Mothering, Science & Technology. Rates for local attendees, including students have been drastically discounted, but spaces are limited so register early.

There will also be a one-day symposium celebrating the life and work of poet, anti-war activist and radical feminist Adrienne Rich (1929-2012), author of Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Institution and Experience.

For those interested in presenting a paper, there are a few spots still left. Send abstract and bio immediately to York women's studies Professor Andrea O’Reilly, founder and director of MIRCI, at
