Stories of Caregiving: Intersections of Academic Research and Women's Everyday Experiences
Buzzanell, Patrice M.; D'Enbeau, Suzy
Qualitative Inquiry, v15 n7 p1199-1224 2009
The article analyzes contemporary discourses and practices of caregiving and mothering. Using a case study of one employed mother as a starting point, the authors engage in writing-stories that combine the analyses of their e-mail and face-to-face conversations from the last couple of years with various journal entries and interdisciplinary research. The article concludes with a final section that articulates how caregiving discourses cut across public--private binaries in contradictory and productive ways. The analysis coalesces in a final writing-story. (Contains 1 note.)
