Dawn Lewellyn - Motherhood, voluntary childlessness and Christianity: narratives of choice (CRCG, UGent)

19/03/2018

How do Christian women understand their reproductive choices? How do they navigate the religious expectation to have children at a time when more women are choosing not to become mothers? What personal, social, and institutional factors feature in women’s decision-making regarding motherhood and childlessness? How do women interpret the ways motherhood is enshrined in scripture, doctrine, teaching, and everyday Church practices? This paper draws on a current project examining the discourses and practices of ‘choice’ towards motherhood or elective childlessness in contemporary Christianity. Using a narrative approach (Bold 2012; Ellis 2004) I conducted interviews with Christian women about the process of considering motherhood and childlessness, the impact that reproductive agency has on women’s faith development, and the potential tensions of these ‘choices’ in a family-affirming tradition.

Dawn Llewellyn is Senior Lecturer in Christian Studies at the University of Chester. She is the author ofReading, Feminism, and Spirituality: Troubling the Waves (Palgrave, 2015); has co-edited Religion, Equalities and Inequalities (Routledge, 2016) with Sonya Sharma and Reading Spiritualities (Ashgate, 2008)with Deborah F. Sawyer.
