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
