A Mother's Day Collection

A young girl reads a book with her mother.

Mother’s Day is an annual celebration of motherhood’s immense value. In honor of this holiday, Hopkins Press has compiled a list of journal articles encompassing the many facets of motherhood: historical accounts of motherhood, poets’ commemorations of their mothers, discussions of the impacts of political circumstances on motherhood, motherhood in the academy, and more. The scholarship below has been made freely available through the month of May.
