Mother is a Verb: An Unconventional History
Please note, this event has expired.
Pregnancy, birth and the encounter with an infant: how have these experiences changed over time and cultures? Blending memoir and history, Sarah Knott of Indiana University draws on the terrain of Britain and North America from the seventeenth century to the close of the twentieth. Knott searches among a range of past societies, pores over archives, and documents her own experiences to craft a new historical interpretation of maternity for our changing times.
