Mothering Mennonite marks the first scholarly attempt to incorporate religious groundings in interpretations of motherhood. Contributors address cultural constructions of motherhood within ethno-religious Mennonite communities, examining mother-daughter relationships and intergenerational influences, analyzing visual and literary representations of Mennonite mothers, challenging cultural constructions and expectations of motherhood, and tracing the effects of specific religious and cultural contexts on mothering in North and Latin America. 

Sponsored by the Institute of Anabaptist and Mennonite Studies at Conrad Grebel University College.
