520    For too long the main narratives of motherhood have been 
       oppressive and exclusionary, frequently ignoring issues of
       female identity--especially regarding those not conforming
       to traditional female stereotypes. Horrible Mothers offers
       a variety of perspectives for analyzing representations of
       the mother in francophone literature and film at the turn 
       of the twenty-first century in North America, including 
       Québec, Ontario, New England, and California. Contributors
       reexamine the "horrible mother" paradigm within a broad 
       range of sociocultural contexts from different locations 
       to broaden the understanding of mothering beyond 
       traditional ideology. The selections draw from long-
       established scholarship in women's studies as well as from
       new developments in queer studies to make sense of and 
       articulate strategies of representation; to show how 
       contemporary family models are constantly evolving, 
       reshaping, and moving away from heteronormative 
       expectations; and to reposition mothers as subjects 
       occupying the center of their own narrative, rather than 
       as objects. The contributors engage narratives of 
       mothering from myriad perspectives, referencing the works 
       of writers or filmmakers such as Marguerite Andersen, 
       Nelly Arcan, Grégoire Chabot, Xavier Dolan, Nancy Huston, 
       and Lucie Joubert.
