Broadening horizons : international exchanges in social work by Wanda Thomas Bernard( Book )

Mothers and sons : centering mother knowledge( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceptual and empirical studies as well as creative works tend to primarily contemplate parental interactions and influence in same sex generational dyads, resulting in a dearth of scholarship on motherhood in relation to sonhood. The philosophy that fathers raise sons and mothers raise daughters has compromised investment and progress in research in this area. This presumed gendered parental legacy not only privileges patriarchal estimations of motherhood, but also tenders universal approaches to the proper parenting of sons, erasing the diversity of mother-son experiences. This anthology, in a departure from common approaches to studying motherhood, principally privileges mother knowledge and not knowledge about mothers. The autoethnographic lens applied in the different contributions centre phenomenological mother knowledge in examining occupational, relational and emotional dimensions of mothering sons. Mothers and Sons: Centering Mother Knowledge makes a case for the need to de-gender the framing and study of parental legacy. The actualization of an entire collection on this dyad foregrounding motherhood without particularizing the absence of fatherhood is in itself revolutionary. This assemblage of analytical, narrative and creative renderings offers cross-disciplinary conceptualizations of maternal experiences across difference and mothering sons at intersections. The authors' mother knowledge, or that of their subjects, delivers new insights into the appellations mother, son, motherhood and sonhood."--

"Canada is committed to the protection of human rights at home and abroad. With this aim, it has made a range of international and domestic commitments, and works closely with like-minded states to advance respect for human rights. National laws and regulations, including the Export and Import Permits Act (EIPA), also aim to prevent Canada and Canadians from contributing to serious violations of internationally recognized human rights or serious violations of international humanitarian law abroad. It is with this in mind that the Standing Senate Committee on Human Rights undertook a study to examine available economic levers that can be used to enhance respect for human rights, with particular focus on the EIPA"--Executive summary, p. 9
