Nonbinary Maternal

“Notes for a Nonbinary Theory of the Maternal”

This presentation will explore initial steps towards thinking mothering and the maternal within nonbinary gender space. Antiracist, decolonial, and transfeminist knowledges will be centered as crucial to embodied research in a reopened field of maternal technique.

This video talk was presented virtually at the third Maternal Forum on “Performing Climate, Gender and Maternal Futures,” part of the AHRC-funded Performance and the Material project at University of South Wales and Edge Hill University. The theme for this forum was: How might a maternal inclination help us to re-imagine the future? What maternal futures might we want to create?

You can read a lovely response / commentary by Georgina Biggs in the project document: “Engage: conversations across performance studies and the maternal fora.”
