    Abstract

    For this Special Issue of Studies in the Maternal, we are drawing together a wide range of papers presented at M(O)ther Trouble, an international conference co-hosted in May 2009 by MaMSIE, (Birkbeck, University of London) and CentreCATH, (University of Leeds). This was a unique two-day event that emerged out of discussions between Lisa Baraitser and Sigal Spigel, the co-founders of MaMSIE, and Griselda Pollock, longstanding feminist scholar and art historian, and founder of CentreCATH. At the time Pollock was curating Resonance/Overlay/Interweave: Bracha Ettinger in the Freudian Space of Memory and Migration (2009), an exhibition of art works at the Freud Museum, London, by the artist, psychoanalyst and theorist, Bracha Ettinger. This offered a rare opportunity to organise a parallel event with a twofold aim. These were firstly, to revisit the longstanding and productive enmeshment between psychoanalysis, feminism and the maternal, seeking to understand its contemporary manifestations in the wider context of what Zygmunt Bauman has called 'liquid modernity'i. Secondly, we wanted to provide an academic forum in which to debate Ettinger's recent theoretical work alongside the work of other prominent feminist philosophers, psychoanalysts and theorists.
