Program Title: WINGS #14-18 The Mothering Economy
Description: Talk by Genevieve Vaughan at the 2016 conference of the Mothering Institute for Research and Community Involvement in Toronto. Vaughan states that the act of mothering is unilateral gift-giving, and that an infant's experience of being mothered (whether by biological mother or other) builds both the physical brain and the template of what it is to be human.

Host(s): Frieda Werden
Featured Speakers/Guests: Genevieve Vaughan's 2015 book is titled The Gift in the Heart of Language: The Maternal Source of Meaning. Other works include For-Giving: A Feminist Criticism of Exchange, Free/Not Free, and the anthology Women and the Gift Economy. Cameo from video of neurobiologist Dr. Allan Schore is included in the speech.

Credits: Recorded and produced by Frieda Werden. Thanks to MIRCI - Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement for permission to record.
