Dear ARM Members and Friends,
Please see attached and below for an important letter on the Association for Research on Mothering.
I am writing with some very sad news concerning the Association for Research on Mothering, The Journal of the Association for Research on Mothering and Demeter Press. Due to York University's continued refusal to provide base funding to the association, its journal and press, we will be closing ARM May 1, 2010. The Executive Officer of the Faculty of Liberal and Professional Studies (FLAPS) has assured us that all membership and subscriptions for 2010 and beyond will be reimbursed on a pro-rated basis.
McClung’s is a feminist magazine based out of Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. We are published twice a year (in January and in April) and are largely student-produced. We started as a photocopied magazine 18 years ago. Along the way, we’ve won a Canadian Association of Journalists award. We reflect our readers – young, vibrant, smart women who are interested in eclectic, wild, weird and wonderful pop culture, politics, news and social issues from Toronto and around the world. We give our readers stories about women they can’t find anywhere else.
