During the twentieth century in the United States, numerous factors, including feminism, late capitalism, the increasing acceptance of interracial marriage and calls for legalizing gay marriage, as well as conservative backlashes against these movements, have profoundly altered the way we view marriage. While the range of topics affecting marriage as well as potential authors studied are open, papers examining how changing ideas about ethnic, racial, religious, and/or sexual identity affect the treatment of marriage in late twentieth-century and early twenty-first-century American literature are especially welcome.
