This major event at London's Freud Museum celebrated the launch of Motherhood in Literature and Culture: Interdisciplinary Perspectives from Europe (Routledge). Dealing with a range of topics including pregnancy and birth, affect and ambivalence, and family and legacy, this book - edited by Gill Rye, Victoria Browne, Adalgisa Giorgio, Emily Jeremiah, and Abigail Lee Six - provokes discussion and debate about that most crucial of human activities, mothering. A panel chaired by leading journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and featuring Lisa Baraitser (Birkbeck, University of London), Carolyn Jess-Cooke (University of Glasgow / The Writing Motherhood Project), and Emily Jeremiah (RHUL / co-editor) discussed issues the book raises. The discussion was followed by a Q+A and networking and was recorded by Backdoor Broadcasting.
