Amy Hudock, Founding Co-Editor of Literary Mama writes this of the ARM conference:
This weekend, I got on a plane for the first time in over four years. To go out of the country. Without my daughter. With lots of other mamas. I’m talking about the Association for Research on Mothering (ARM) Conference at York University in Toronto where hundreds of scholars, activists, and writers from all over the world came together to talk about the motherhood movement. You should have been there. But if you weren’t, check out this great video.
If you feel like you missed out, submit a proposal for the next ARM conference this May in New York City -- an event in conjunction with Mamapalooza! You won't regret it!
