內容簡介




In Mothering through Precarity Julie A. Wilson and Emily Chivers Yochim explore how working- and middle-class mothers negotiate the difficulties of twenty-first-century mothering through their everyday engagement with digital media. From Facebook and Pinterest to couponing, health, and parenting websites, the women Wilson and Yochim study rely upon online resources and communities for material and emotional support. Feeling responsible for their family’s economic security, these women often become "mamapreneurs," running side businesses out of their homes. They also feel the need to provide for their family’s happiness, making successful mothering dependent upon economic and emotional labor. Questioning these standards of motherhood, Wilson and Yochim demonstrate that mothers’ work is inseparable from digital media and how it provides them the means for sustaining their families through difficulties such as health scares, underfunded schools, a weakening social safety net, and job losses.
