About the Editors

A. S. CohenMiller and A. Tiu Wu crossed paths over similar research focus and life journey. While distance between them spanned 1,619.28 miles, and in between raising their own families and pursuing their own research, they went on to work together on various academic projects and presented at academic conferences. Their mutual goal is to expand the community of scholars engaged in motherhood/mothering while managing and enjoying other life roles.

If you are interested in contributing a post, interview, research idea, we’d love to hear it!
