    About Studies in the Maternal
    Studies in the Maternalis an international, peer-reviewed, scholarly online journal. It aims to provide a forum for contemporary critical debates on the maternal - understood as lived experience, social location, political and scientific practice, economic and ethical challenge, a theoretical question, and a structural dimension in human relations, politics and ethics.
    Studies in the Maternal provides an interdisciplinary space to extend and develop maternal scholarship, making visible the many diverse strands of work on motherhood, parenting, reproduction, pregnancy, birthing, and childcare across a broad range of disciplinary and practice boundaries. In doing so, it aims to foster dialogue about the maternal and to encourage the exploration of the unique site the maternal occupies

    at the potent intersection between scientific possibilities, psychosocial practices and cultural representations.
    We are seeking articles, essays and reviews from academics, writers, artists and clinical and cultural practitioners who engage with the maternal from diverse perspectives. We also very much welcome work that falls outside of the textual tradition, incorporating or encompassing the visual and/or audio.
    We are especially interested in work in the areas of:
    maternal experience, maternal identities, and maternal subjectivities;
    maternal and pregnant embodiment and affectivity;
    racial, ethnic, national and transnational geneologies of maternity
    the cultural politics of reproduction, natality and birth, including the impact, meanings, histories and possibilities that arise from
    our new reproductive technologies;
    the political possibilities that arise from understandings of the maternal in the context of global/local, neo-liberal, late-capitalist conditions;
    maternal desires, sexualities and genders, queer maternal bodies, and trans-familial practices.
    fatherhood and the paternal;
    maternal aesthetics and representations of the maternal in literature, performance, digital and visual culture;
    cultural representations of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ mothering;
    maternal ethics and its relation to the ethics of care.
    The journal is published twice yearly. The May issue is a Special Issue organised around a specific theme. The October issue is an Open Issue, which may include contributions pertaining to any topic.
    Those wishing to submit contributions for consideration for the Open Issue should send their work to the editors, Lisa Baraitser and Sigal Spigel, at mamsie@bbk.ac.uk.
    Please consult our submission guidelinesfor details of the file formats that can be accepted.
    Members of the editorial board are Gail Lewis, Kate Pullinger, Rachel Thomson and Imogen Tyler. The journal is managed by Polona Curk, Tracey Jensen, Bahar Tanyas and Reina van der Wiel, and designed by Dimitri Hon.
