Constructing Motherhood and Daughterhood Across the Lifespan, Hardback Book

Constructing Motherhood and Daughterhood Across the Lifespan Hardback

Edited by Allison M. Alford, Michelle Miller-Day

Part of the Lifespan Communication series


Constructing Motherhood and Daughterhood Across the Lifespan explores the complex dynamics between mother and daughter over the lifespan.

The editors believe that these vital family roles are socially and communicatively constructed, shaped, and molded as mothers and daughters navigate, respond to, and negotiate cultural and familial discourses.

Aimed at undergraduate students, this timely book includes course activities and discussion questions in every chapter and a complete term syllabus to enhance a professor's teaching, providing a smooth route for adoption as a course text.

The book also builds on and contributes to the critical and theoretical research in family communication, media studies, and gender studies, delving into the nuanced communication surrounding motherhood and daughterhood in the United States.
