Mothers and Daughters is a compelling anthology that explores the multifaceted connections between mothers and daughters. Chapters explore new fields of inquiry, examining discourses about mothers and daughters through academic essays, narrative, and creative work. By examining the experiences of mothers and daughters from within an interdisciplinary framework, which includes cultural, biological, socio-political, relational and historical perspectives, the text surveys multiple approaches to understanding the mother-daughter dynamic. Therefore, the uniqueness and strength of this collection comes from blending not just work from across academic disciplines, but also the forms in which this work is presented: academic inquiry and critique as well as creative and narrative explorations. The length is 296 pages.
