AHRC-funded 'Motherhood in Post-1968 European Literature Network' Workshop Papers
Oedipus interrupted: Introduction to a special cluster on ‘Changing Models of Motherhood’
Victoria Browne has been the Research Network Coordinator for the AHRC-funded 'Motherhood in post-1968 European Literature' Network from March 2012 until November 2013, and is currently undertaking a postdoctoral research fellowship at Oxford Brookes University in the Department of Social Sciences. Her main research interests are in feminist and political philosophy and the philosophy of history and temporality, and her publications include 'Backlash, Repetition and Untimeliness: The Temporal Dynamics of Feminist Politics' (Hypatia, 2013), and 'Memory and the metaphysics of Music: Battersby's Move Away from Deleuze and Guattari' (Women: a Cultural Review, 2011). Victoria is also a member of the editorial collective for the journal Radical Philosophy, and is working on a monograph entitled Transforming Feminist Historiography: a Polytemporal Approach, which is forthcoming with Palgrave.
This special cluster on ‘Changing Models of Motherhood’ introduces two papers presented at a workshop hosted by the AHRC-funded 'Motherhood in Post-1968 European Literature Network'. The aim of the Network has been to enable cross-cultural, transnational, and interdisciplinary dialogue on motherhood, bringing together researchers and practitioners from the UK and Europe studying motherhood in contemporary European literatures, and across a broad range of disciplines and European cultures. In particular, the Network aims to raise the profile of literature in such conversations.
