Who Cares for the 21st Century?

For close to a decade, much of my written and creative work has revolved around themes of the maternal body and maternal identity. Within the last two years, and particularly since I began the MFA program, my interests are shifting, toward considerations of relational care – and how a feminist maternal ethics of care might be embodied through creative practice.

I was so pleased to join my international cohort of maternal artist-scholars in Copenhagen last week, to think together about practices of care from many perspectives. I had a chance to share with them some of my in-process thinking about epistolary praxis as relational care, and I can already see that there are some collaborative possibilities ahead.
