Abstract

‘On the Maternal’ gathers new insights from maternal thinkers, researchers and artists. This issue addresses maternal aesthetics, ethics, politics, labour and care, as well as questions of national identity, queer mothering, reproductive rights, maternal activism, co-operation within the maternal, questions of national identity, colonialism and gender identity. Transnational in scope, with contributions covering work from Australia, Canada, China, Ireland, France, Germany, Puerto Rico, UK, USA, Russia and the former Yugoslav Republic this issue charts the multifaceted work of maternal performance as well as corresponding theoretical approaches across the fields of philosophy, psychoanalysis, maternal studies, feminist and political theory. ‘On the Maternal’ offers a space for a different kind of (m)other relations where we reflect and enact our relationality with others. The issue opens up new ways of thinking, seeing and feeling the maternal in and through performance practices, exploring alliances between the maternal and (feminist) performance.
