The spring 2020 issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities examines how mothers and motherhood has been represented in fine art, crafts, literature, music, theatre, and popular culture. We invite essays that consider motherhood archetypes in the arts, mothers of color in the arts, immigrant mothers in the arts, queer mothers in the arts, representations of surrogate mothers and mothers who have adopted, motherhood on social media, motherhood memoirs and blogs, representations of mothers in art and photography, the absent mother and/or the step-mother in film and television, and more. Inquiries and submissions should be sent to Lee Ann Westman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
