The modernist period is characterized by great interest in questions of tradition (or lineage), the original and the derivative, and in women and creativity. Writers from Freud to Henry Adams to Virginia Woolf to Havelock Ellis addressed themselves to matters of gender, sexuality, and cultural production. This panel will consider the relationship between modernism and maternity. Questions to be addressed include the significance of childbirth and maternity in the lives of women modernists; obscenity laws and representations of pregnancy and childbirth;  maternal tropes in modernisms; race, maternity, and creativity; and queer maternities in the modernist period.
