About

Carl Timolean von Neff, “Estonian Woman with Child”, circa 1855

Welcome to the Slavic and East European Maternal Studies Network website, co-organized by Dr Muireann Maguire (University of Exeter) and Dr Egle Kackute (University of Vilnius) and funded by an AHRC Networking Grant (2021-22). We are a network of academics involved in Slavic Maternal Studies, researching pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, maternal health and behaviour, and other aspects of maternity in the context of the literature and cinema of Slavic and East European nations. Our primary focus are maternal fictions – cultural constructions of mothers and maternity. We also welcome the participation of scholars working on the sociology and history of motherhood and maternal behaviour.
