Family Structures

FAMILY STRUCTURES (OF INNOVATION)

This panel challenges clich├ęs of modernist individualism in order to consider the ways that families have influenced modernism, and the ways that modernism has helped to re-frame the notion of family. We invite papers that investigate how modernist authors and artists re-imagined relationships between parents and children, between siblings, as well as among members of extended families and chosen domestic units, such as utopian communities and communes. We are especially interested in the relationship between forms of familial innovation lived out in the experience of exemplary modernists and played out in their work. Please send submissions by March 15th to Chris Reed (English and Visual Culture, Penn State) at cgr11@psu.edu and Libby Bischof (History, University of Southern Maine) ebischof@usm.maine.edu.
