We are adult educators, research scholars and mothers seeking joy in raising our families while engaged in academia. We met on LinkedIn and found a deeply powerful shared research area and experience, which led our coming together to create this blog.
Mother Academic / Academic Mother is a resource examining research and experiences in adult education, qualitative methodologies, gender, and popular culture.
Our current purpose is two-fold:
1. To support, nurture and educate our community about the multifaceted aspects of parenting, specifically motherhood/mothering in academia.
2. To create a resource and space for the growing community of educators and learners interested in sharing their voices about motherhood and mothering through research, dialogue and reflections.
