Mother Machine

Elissa Marder, Anne O’Byrne, Kelly Oliver, Andrew Parker, Kyoo Lee

What does mothering mean in this age of biotechnological innovation and global transaction? How can we re-conceptualize the innate complexity and diversity of maternal functions without, as Julia Kristeva puts it, “playing down the passionate violence of the maternal experience”? Join a panel of leading theorists to explore the ripe and radical changing territory of motherhood.
