Toni Morrison and Mothering/Motherhood - CFP for Edited Collection

Lee Baxter and Martha Satz / Demeter Press

We are seeking and welcome perspectives from a variety of disciplines, historical, comparative, and cross-cultural, for a collection of essays entitled Toni Morrison and Mothering/Motherhood. In her vast body of work, fiction and non-fiction, Toni Morrison explores and critiques American/African American culture. While Morrison's novels examine multiple topics such as race, slavery, trauma, and identity, the theme Morrison continually returns to in her work is motherhood. Her most well-known work, for example, Beloved, is a relentless exploration of the dilemmas of motherhood under slavery. Motherhood, however, is a problematic term as it is a social construction dominated by patriarchy and in the case of African-American motherhood, racism.

Panic, apprehension, alarm, fear, dread: these and other relatives of terror have long infected Australian texts. Resisting demarcation, terror can be a protean sense, a chimerical substance, an uncontainable ill feeling, or an institutionalised technic—a form of disciplinary power.
