"Students Should Not Be Your Friends": Testimonio by a Latina on Mothering One's Own, Othermothering, and Mentoring Students in the Academy
Esposito, Jennifer
Equity & Excellence in Education, v47 n3 p273-288 2014
This article is an autoethnographic account of how I negotiated intersectional identities as a Latina, mother, and professor, mentoring students of color. Specifically, I examine the ways mothering shaped my relationships with the students I mentored. I engaged in "othermothering" and utilized "pedagogies of the home" by creating reciprocal relationships of caring and nurturing. Utilizing critical race theory (CRT) and testimonio, I argue that my identity as a mother of color successfully negotiating the tenure track impacted the ways in which I mentor(ed) students of color.
