The Editors’ Introduction to the special issue on ‘Motherhood, Religions and Spirituality’
serves to explain the rationale, research questions and context for this interdisciplinary
collection. As such, it engages with Kawash’s call for more scholarly work on the
intersections between mothering and religious beliefs, practices and experiences. It goes on to situate the contributions into feminist work and methodologies and to show how they focus on the voices and agency of mothers (and non-mothers), before introducing and contextualising the individual contributions. The Introduction concludes by discussing further studies that could build on the work of this collection.
