Blood Relations: Feminist Theory Meets the Uncanny Alien Bug Mother

Hypatia 7 (2):74 - 90 (1992)
Abstract
This essay addresses the troubling and uncanny figure of Mother in feminist theory, psychoanalytic theory, literary criticism, and real life. Readings of feminist literary criticism and the films Alien and Aliens explore the liminality of Mother and the consequences for feminist thought and practice of the persistent narrative modes (the sentimental and the gothic) locatable in all of these discourses on/of Motherhood.
