Listen to this posting

In the last years more and more authors are addressing the themes of Mothering/Shame/Guilt from using the woman’s/mother’s experiences as the subject as opposed to the object of the narratives. First person narrations of motherhood, postpartum depression, good mom/bad mom myth, etc. are centering women’s voices and lived experiences in the French and Francophone literature and film.

Even as the current psychological and social research continues to explore mothering experiences, there is still not a sufficient corpus of work done that examines the relationship among mothering, guilt and shame. This panel invites papers that explore the relationship between mothering and guilt/shame in the narratives of French and Francophone literature and film.
