• Queer Milk

Jackson, Melanie and Leslie, Esther, 2017, Conference or Workshop, Queer Milk at Feminist Emergency - International Conference, London, UK, 22-24 June 2017.

Abstract or Description:

This interdisciplinary panel traces the production, visualisation and psycho-sociopolitical meanings of the bodily fluid, milk. It investigates the intersections between the lactating body, technologies, and markets, in contemporary conditions in which women are demanded on to be constantly productive in the new economy. Examining the visualisation and meanings of milk that circulate in the wider economy alongside its flow as material substance – passing between mothers and infants, milk-sharing between women, between women and men, humans and animals, or human-machine assemblages – the panel additionally opens up the contradictory and ambivalent ways maternal sexual subjectivity, maternal labour and care are imagined, represented, queered, managed, and exploited.
