The Importance of Mothers
Co-director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities, Jacqueline Rose is a renowned literary and cultural critic. In her inspiring book Mothers: An Essay on Love and Cruelty, she deploys a range of material, from policy documents to social history and psychoanalysis, to demonstrate that by denying the crucial role played by mothers, we are damaging individuals and society as a whole. Chaired by Jackie McGlone.
