Breakfast with Scholar: Dr. Christine Vega, co-editor of The Chicana Motherwork Anthology
Join us for a “Breakfast with Scholar” gathering with Dr. Christine Vega, co-editor of The Chicana Motherwork Anthology(University of Arizona Press, 2019). Scholars from this anthology center the framework of motherwork, a feminist concept that recognizes, validates, and centers the too often unseen and unrecognized forms of labor done by Chicana and Women of Color mother-scholars. Merging the Chicana/Latina tradition of testimonios, this anthology aims to imagine and realize the ability to thrive in and outside of academia.
Organized into four parts -- (1) separation, migration, state violence, and detention; (2) Chicana/Latina/WOC mother-activists; (3) intergenerational mothering; and (4) loss, reproductive justice, and holistic pregnancy – this anthology “addresses the layers of care work needed for collective resistance to structural oppression and inequality.”
RSVP is requested, though not required, so we can plan accordingly for food.
This event is co-sponsored by Oakes College.
