Dear ARM Members and Friends,

ARM's 9th annual conference on "Mothering, Race, Culture, Ethnicity and

The book will be edited by Jeanette Corbiere Lavell and Dawn Memee
Lavell-Harvard. (Bios included below)

We are still seeking chapters for this book, particularly in the area of
literature, popular culture, and history. As well, we are particularly

in receiving submissions from perspectives other than 'North American."
