Alanna Rudzik publishes book chapter

Alanna Rudzik (Anthropology) has recently published a chapter titled “Mothering, Identity Construction, and Visions of the Future Among Low-Income Adolescent Mothers from São Paulo, Brazil” in the peer-reviewed volume Marginalized Mothers, Mothering from the Margins, edited by Tiffany Taylor and Katrina Bloch (Emerald Publishing, 2018).

The chapter examines the experience of teen mothers living in marginalized areas of São Paulo and explores how the integration of a maternal identity with previously existing identities might lead to new aspirations and ambitions for the future or to hopelessness and despair, shaped by the embodied experience of motherhood and pre-existing structural forces.
