All in the Family? An Interdisciplinary Conference on Kinship and Community

March 25th to 26th, 2010

Center for the Humanities
The Graduate Center
City University of New York
365 Fifth Avenue @ 34th Street
NYC

For a full schedule and venues, please download the Program (PDF).

Have alternative forms of collectivity eclipsed the normative family? What are the problems and promises of new family formations? What is the business of families? How have technologies altered notions of reproduction, and in what ways is natality tied to forms of non/human association? Can househusbands be unhappy? What is responsible parenting? How does death reunite or reform kinship, personally or politically?

Join us for this provocative symposia with renowned scholars from a variety of fields: Carlos Ball (Law, Rutgers School of Law), Herman Bennett (History, the Graduate Center, CUNY), Kimiko Hahn (Creative Writing, Queens College), Lynne Huffer (Women’s Studies, Emory), Kathleen Gerson (Sociology, NYU), Cindi Katz (Environmental Psychology and Geography, the Graduate Center, CUNY), Nancy K. Miller (English, the Graduate Center, CUNY), Jennifer Morgan (Social and Cultural Analysis, NYU), Kelly Oliver (Philosophy, Vanderbilt), Gabriele Schwab (Comparative Literature, UC Irvine), and many others.

Organized by the 2010-2011 Resident Mellon Fellows, Alyson M. Cole, Associate Professor of Political Science, Queens College and the Graduate Center, and Kyoo Lee, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at John Jay College. Co-sponsored by philoSOPHIA: A Feminist Society and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
