About the event

A two-day workshop is being held to respond to shattering the silence in which mother-academics and mother-students are presently situated.

Event information

By building on previous work carried out by mother-subjects in a project supported by the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education (UoN), it hopes to create a space for mother-academics and mother-students to speak our experiences so that we can come to "know ourselves and each other" and create the grounds of possibility for solidarity across difference.

This two-day workshop will be organised around four opening encounters spaced throughout the workshop given by our invited speakers:

  *   Professor Caroline Turner, California State University, Sacramento (USA);
  *   Associate Professor Elizabeth Mackinlay, University of Queensland;
  *   Dr. Danielle Drozdzewski, University of New South Wales; and
  *   The University of Newcastle Mother Research Collective (Dr. Sara Motta, Lara Daley and Suzanne Barker).

The workshop will also include dialogues organised around a number of presentations.
