Motherhood under the Microscope: Perspectives from the Social Sciences

Motherhood under the Microscope: Perspectives from the Social Sciences
Friday 2 August 2019

The ANU Centre for Philosophy of the Sciences joins the ANU Gender Institute in presenting a workshop examining “Motherhood under the Microscope: Perspectives from the Social Sciences” as part of the 2019 National Science Week.

What makes a good mother? What makes a mother at all? Where does motherhood come from? The nature of motherhood has perhaps never been more controversial or debated as it is today. The ANU Gender Institute and Centre for Philosophy of the Sciences invite you to this special workshop examining the scientific basis of motherhood from a philosophical and sociological perspective. The event will feature talks by Fiona Woollard (Southampton), Ellen Clarke (Leeds) and Catherine Waldby (ANU).

The event is aimed at a general audience and all are welcome.

Wed August 14, 2019 2-5pm

Room 2.02 Sir Roland Wilson Building
