WDtS Egleston: Mothers & Daughters: A Conversation between Our Inner Selves
"Our mothers are our first homes, and that’s why we’re always trying to return to them." -Michele Filgate
Whether you are a mother, a daughter, or both--whether you have not considered these roles to be integral parts of your identity or whether they define you (or have been used to define you), there is no denying the rich and complex history of mother-daughter relationships. Through prompts given every ten minutes, this highly-generative class will seek to help participants give language to some of what we so often leave unsaid. Participants can expect to leave with notes toward a personal essay and suggested readings by Gloria Anzaldúa, Sheila Heti, Jamaica Kincaid, and Jennifer Lunden.
