Teaching Mother Studies in the Academy and Beyond: Bring your Art, Scholarship, and Expertise
All submissions for this conference should be considered for submission to the first edition of the Journal of Mother Studies (JourMS), an academic, peer-reviewed journal devoted to Mother Studies.
Anyone may submit a paper but articles must be of a scholarly nature and should be 10-20 pages (maximum 4,000 words) including references. We accept powerpoint presentations as well. Many of our authors are published writers with popular books. Journalistic papers are encouraged. We value intellectual accessibility as much as we value research and rigor. JourMS aims to cultivate a wide readership with authors who can relay meaningful information, while addressing important issues, in order to establish JourMS as a contributor of content in the field of Mother Studies. All text should be in APA style and submitted in Word Document.
