To theorise in a more passionate way. Carol Lee Bacchi's Diary of Mothering and Contemporary Post/Academic Writing Strategies
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Social Work.
2009 (English)In: Feminist Theory, ISSN 1464-7001, E-ISSN 1741-2773, Vol. 10, no 1, 121-131 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article seeks to explore feminist theorising on mothering by discussing the complexity related to movement between different forms of textual representations/’genre’; that is, what is often referred to as academic and not academic writing. In the article, Carol Lee Bacchi, previously Professor of Politics at the University of Adelaide, is invited to reflect upon the process of writing the book Fear of food – a diary of mothering. By introducing the term post/academic writing as a contemporary condition of multiple and shifting movements of interdisciplinary writing, feminist theorising, in the case of Bacchi, is analysed as a movement characterised by resistance, reflexivity and passion.
