Privatised Motherhood PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Privatised Motherhood free pdf The privatisation of relationships of care and dependency is increasing- the new social media is facilitating a "confessional" society and our press is keen to interrogate every dimension of our relationships. The combined cultural effect of these elements has created a paradoxical gap within which women with children may express the previously inexpressible: the ambivalence, difficulty and disappointment of motherhood. This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to a series of texts that are concerned with maternity- primarily novels and non-fiction books written by women from the 2000s onwards. It also utilizes insights from gender studies, psychoanalytic thought, psychosocial studies and literary and cultural analysis to set out a new paradigm for maternal expression and the delineation of maternal subjects within neoliberal capitalism. Revealing the intense difficulties of conceptualising maternal care and dependent relationships under the capitalist system, it further demonstrates the anxious intensification on the idealisation of women's care for children and the contradictory effects this has on the women charged to live it out. Students and academics with interests in contemporary fiction, gender studies, sociology and motherhood specifically will find this an important point of reference.
