Collective Memory-work as Method and Resistance
Keywords:Academic mothers, collective memory work, memory work as method, PBRF
AbstractFour academic mothers share their first foray into collective memory-work while exploring academic mother subjectivities located within tertiary education in New Zealand. Originating in education and gender studies, memory-work is currently an untapped research method in anthropology. The authors invite anthropologists to explore the value of collective memory-work, particularly when all participants seek academic outputs; where power imbalances in the group are minimal; and where trusting relationships are pre-established. Key words: memory-work; collective memory-work; mothers; academic mothers; method; PBRF.
