Chicana M(other)work is a concept, project, and collective informed by our specific gendered, classed, and racialized experiences as first-generation, working class, Chicana-identified, PhD mamas from Mexican immigrant families. Chicana M(other)work offers a new interpretation of motherwork that looks at care work in a way that includes what we do in our communities through activism, self-care, healing, survival, and accountability. Together, as the Chicana M(other)work collective, we theorize, write, organize, mother, and create spaces for communal healing and care out of our shared belief that the labor of mothering is a transformative act within and beyond academia. Our collective work includes collaborative academic writing and digital media projects.
