The Journal of Mother Studies: a peer-reviewed, international, interdisciplinary open-access, digital humanities hybrid project.

Welcome to JourMS (the Journal for Mother Studies).
Mother Studies is a field of interdisciplinary study devoted to the issues, experiences, topics, history, and culture of m/others, mothering, and motherhood.

Scholarly articles by academics and students, fine art presentations, PPT, and other submissions considered from January to June of each year. The journal is interdisciplinary (see “guidelines” page for specifics). Annual MOM Conference presenters are those conducting research, literature reviews, and autoethnographic work on the topic(s) of women, mothers, fathers, parents, families, and caregiving, as well as those seeking to amplify the voices of marginalized populations through ongoing discourse and education. We also invite editorial board members along with submissions.

We invite you to join JourMS and the Society for Mother Studies; to take online classes in Mother Studies, which can be found by accessing our learning website (more about Mother Studies); and to make a donation to the Museum of Motherhood or the MOM Art Annex.

This journal utilizes tools and theory from the digital humanities, employing open-access resources, encouraging collaboration, and offering community building with the broad goal of advancing the field of Mother Studies.
