Call for Book Chapter Proposals – Motherhood and War
Call for Book Chapter Proposals – Motherhood and War Editors: Dana Cooper, Stephen F. Austin University; Claire Phelan, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Our proposed volume will examine the various roles assumed by mothers during periods of national, or international, unrest. Conflict has certainly affected women in ways that are unique to their sex, yet while many have suffered emotionally or even physically, others have felt the more grievous loss of a son through death or life-altering injury. How did women cope during times of such great uncertainty, and how did they navigate the social boundaries of their day in order to make a substantive contribution to the war effort if, indeed, they did? Our proposed edited volume will approach the topic from chronological and regional perspective in an effort to identify responses from women that are both traditional and non-traditional. This project is nearly complete, with the exception of submissions for LATIN AMERICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST. We encourage interested contributors to forward a 300-500 word abstract, along with a brief curriculum vita, to Claire Phelan at your earliest convenience. Successful authors will be notified within two weeks of submission.
