Amsler, Sarah; Motta, Sara C. – Gender and Education, 2019
In this paper, we offer a critique of neoliberal power from the perspective of the gendered, sexualised, raced and classed politics of motherhood in English universities.

In doing so, the paper proposes that situatedness should be understood in terms of processes of co-invention that, fractally and recursively,…
