Scholars of literature and the social sciences look beyond the experience paradigm of motherhood to motherhood as an intellectual and political practice and institution. Understanding motherhood as both a cultural and personal construction, they argue, requires a profound rethinking of connections between self and world, experience and ideology. Their topics include the validation stories of ordinary women in extraordinary circumstances, maternal subjectivities in midlife transition from a heterosexual to a lesbian identity, motherhood and slavehood in Harriet Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, and a Kristevan reading of Anne Enright's memoir Making Babies: Stumbling into Motherhood.
