Join us to celebrate the publication of Australian sociologist Petra Bueskens' edited collection Nancy Chodorow and The Reproduction of Mothering: Forty Years On. The book will be launched by Associate Professor Julie Stephens. It will feature Nancy Chodorow reflecting on her canonical book, its meaning and place in sociology, psychoanalysis and feminism after forty years. The launch will also feature authors Rosemary Balsam, Adrienne Harris, Elizabeth Abel, Ilene Philipson, Daphne de Marneffe, Meg Jay, Leslie Bell, Jade McGleughlin, Katie Garner and Ursula Fanning discussing their chapters. In the 40 years since its publication, The Reproduction of Mothering has had a profound impact on scholarship across many disciplines including sociology, psychoanalysis, psychology, ethics, literary criticism and women’s and gender studies. It was voted one of the 10 most influential books in the social sciences in in the preceding 25 years by the flagship journal Contemporary Sociology in 1999. Organized as a “reproduction of mothering scholarship”, this volume adopts a generationally differentiated structure weaving personal, political and scholarly essays across several generations of scholars engaging with Chodorow’s classic text. This book brings Nancy Chodorow and her canonical work to a new generation of scholars and clinicians.
