MamaScholars: Mothering in Academia Symposium
We are excited to host a symposium with the goal of building community and healing spaces for mother-scholars at SDSU and local colleges. We aim to create academically-informed consciousness-raising spaces for mothers and allies about the particular needs of mothering across culture, race, ethnicity, class, citizenship status, gender, sexuality, size, age, ability, and relationship status.

In order to do this, we are inviting scholars, community activists, and healers of color to promote educational tools for creating positive self-agency. At the heart of our vision is working toward creating a mothering collective that advocates for mothers’ needs in support of their academic goals.
