Staging motherhood and mothers in British drama across centuries

Due to the ongoing discussions on the value of family in the contemporary world, the subject of motherhood returned to the forefront of public discourse in Europe and incited new polemics on – as is suggested by rightist politics – the natural drive towards maternity. We wish to broaden the research on motherhood and focus on topics and tropes of motherhood, mothers, maternity, and mothering as shown on stage and presented in published/written British drama.

We invite you to send abstracts on literary/dramatic and linguistic/semantic aspects related to the idea of dramatised motherhood. We are particularly looking for papers on:

The TROPOS organizing committee welcomes submissions for papers or organized panels in English, French, and Spanish that explore possible answers to these and other questions as represented in cultural production of the Romance World. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
