Performing Motherhood explores relationships between performativity and the maternal. Highlighting mothers' lived experiences, this collection examines mothers' creativity and agency as they perform in everyday life: in mothering, in activism, and in the arts. Chapters contain theoretically grounded works that emerge from multiple disciplines and cross-disciplines and include first-person narratives, empirical studies, artistic representations, and performance pieces. This book focuses on motherwork, maternal agency, mothers' multiple identities and marginalized maternal voices, and explores how these are performatively constituted, negotiated and affirmed.
