Teacher, Scholar, Mother deals with intersecting axes of power and privilege in order to advance a more productive conversation across disciplines on motherhood. "Mother" is a central figure in cultural discourse. She is a force of stability and comfort, a symbol of home and family, and the source of our earliest memories of nurturing and care. "Mother" is also a politically charged ideal. She is self-motivated and career-driven, passionate about her job, and trying to create a balance between her home and work lives. The mother-scholar contributors explore theoretical and disciplinary approaches to academic motherhood, examine critical and cultural territory associated with academic motherhood, and articulate the challenges of their dual identity.

As women academics struggle to negotiate hospitable professional spaces, they are often pulled
