Annual Conferences

Each year since 2005, the Museum of Motherhood has worked in collaboration with local universities to plan, create, and produce The Annual Arts and Academic MoM Conference, supporting academic excellence and creative collaboration in the area of Mother Studies. Organizers work with academics, students, and performance artists to create experiences that are both educational in nature, and supportive of womyn in the arts. The International Museum Of Motherhood (MoM) is a living, breathing, community-centered arts, media and social change space focused on amplifying the voices and experiences of m/others as well as those exploring reproductive identities. By connecting interdisciplinary research, creativity, and promotions in the field of Mother Studies we pioneer new areas of academe, and manage a safe and inclusive space (online and in person) so that those invested in these areas of investigation will have the opportunity for personal expression in a collaborative community environment. The conference is open to all. Conference presenters (including students) are invited to submit to the Journal of Mother Studies (JourMS) a hybrid digital humanities project.
