Performing Motherhood: Artistic, Activist, and Everyday Enactments

Performing Motherhood explores relationships between performativity and the maternal. Highlighting mothers’ lived experiences, this collection examines mothers’ creativity and agency as they perform in everyday life: in mothering, in activism, and in the arts.  This book focuses on motherwork, maternal agency, mothers’ multiple identities and marginalized maternal voices, and explores how these are performatively constituted, negotiated and affirmed.

This is the inside story of the English recording of Sailor Moon and will make the reader aware of the arduous work that actually took place to achieve this groundbreaking series that still receives continuing adoration.
