rhetoric and composition
In summer of 2017, Wonder Woman challenged cultural assumptions of box office superheroes and positioned motherhood as an integral part of a feminist resistance. But motherhood as an act of resistance began long before Wonder Woman’s re-introduction to mainstream pop culture. Motherhood is often used as a rhetorical strategy in anti-violence movements, but motherhood is also used to justify violence as resistance. This panel invites submissions that consider the role of the mother as central to individual, local, national, and global activisms and resistance movements in literature, media portrayals, online communities, grassroot campaigns and more.
