This special session for the 2012 PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) Conference seeks papers that address the following:
The CA Prop 8 trial and the 2012 GOP Presidential campaign have highlighted the idea that marriage is not only socially constructed, but also socially productive. Examining texts from the 20th century (and the eleven years of the 21st), how has marriage been defined, depicted, and valued? Moreover, how have "unorthodox" marriages contributed to or hindered society?
This session welcomes papers from across the disciplines. Please use the PAMLA 2012 site to submit a proposal before Sunday, April 22, 2012.
