RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Dr. Celine Parrenas Shimizu will be in town on October 14th from 6:30 to 9:00 pm at PSU in the Multicultural Center (Smith Union 228) showing her new documentary, Birhtright: Mothering across difference. A discussion will follow the film and the event is free.
She would be an excellent guest for the show, particularly given all the mother centered activities, groups and services that exits in Portland.
Through interviews with approximately 50 mother in Santa Barbara, the film offers a mutli-class and multi-racial account of mothering through the film medium. Santa Barbara epitomizes the stratified society of the United States, where the extremely rich and extremely poor live side-by-side in the "new economy." In the context of this disparity how is mothering experienced?
