Final conference

In 2020, a group of researchers from Vilnius University (Lithuania), Uppsala University (Sweden), and Maynooth University (Ireland) were awarded funding from the EU Horizon 2020 Twinning research and innovation programme to carry out collaborative and interdisciplinary cutting-edge research on contemporary motherhood (grant agreement No 952366). The project has since become known as MotherNet and, over the course of the last 3 years, the team has been involved in the establishment of research clusters, publications, summer schools, mentoring, scientific missions, knowledge dissemination and public outreach activities across the globe. This conference will mark the culminating event of MotherNet’s research journey and aims to provide a space where we can reflect on what we have learned thus far but also an opportunity for new scholars who are unfamiliar with our work to join us in our dialogue around the many meanings of motherhood.
