Abstract: This study examines national television news images of mothers of U. S. combat soldiers during the first seven years of the Iraq War. News stories presented mothers as archetypal good mothers engaged in maternal work long after their childrens’ deployment. Mothers were depicted as vocal vis a vis their position on the Iraq war, a contrast to the historical depiction of archetypal patriotic mother who is stoic and silent. The resulting image is more complex suggesting the archetype may be shifting.

2. Moreira, Claudio. "Mother is not Brown: The “unmarked” performance of keeping the hair straight or the un-political racial performance of Mother’s hair.

Abstract: I never wrote about Mother before.
In this performance autoethnography the author explores the simultaneity of telling and resisting stories of lived experience. In the process the author constructs the notion of “resisting stories” as autoethnographic performance narratives that both resist and demand telling in the process of making themselves public. Through his memories, the author tries to show the in-possible performance of brown bodied, curlier hair woman, his Mother, in her yearning to whiteness.
Please, keep your “hair straight” and…
Mother is not brown.

"Black Mothers, Work, and the State: Low-Income Black Single Mothers’ Experiences with Motherhood, Mothering, and Employment" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Hilton Baltimore, Baltimore, MD, <Not Available>. 2019-10-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1269672_index.html>

Abstract: Black women in the U.S. have had to fight for the right to bear and mother children in the face of social and institutional barriers and threats of state violence (Collins, 1994; Rodriguez, 2016). Particularly, low-income single Black women are often deemed unsuitable for mothering. Employing Black Feminist perspectives, this paper explores how low-income Black single mothers on TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) interpret Black motherhood and mothering, including how they experience and view the relationship between their employment, their identity as mothers, and their mothering activities. The results challenge dominant frameworks in literatures on work and family.

Abstract: This research is a qualitative study of mothering young urban teens. Using intensive interview data drawn from a sample of (46) urban mothers of diverse racial and class backgrounds I examine the interlocking relationship between gender, race, and class in mothering philosophies. Overall, all mothers in the study give support to the view that mothers ought to be viewed as agents of change. However, upon more nuanced analysis, themes clustered around the intersection of race, class, and gender. The data reveals two broad categories that I will dub “Breaking the Cycle” and “Recalibrating the Norm.” By “Breaking the Cycle,” mothers indicate dimensions upon which they actively strive to engender social mobility for their children. By “Recalibrating the Norm,” mothers describe ways in which they seek to reframe or recast what is considered socially just and acceptable. While both themes describe mothers as agents of change, the nature of the change desired is quite different, and gives empirical evidence for theoretical distinctions along race, class, and gender lines.
