Course Description: The family continues to be regarded as a private institution that should be immune to public scrutiny, despite the increasing intervention in the family by public institutions, notably the law, education, medicine, and social services. Towards the end of the 20th century, feminist thinkers challenged the view that the family is a private domain and there is now a growing tradition of using alternative perspectives, such as gender studies and childhood studies to examine the family as a site of contestation over members’ rights and responsibilities. This course covers the public/private divide, feminist perspectives on families, men’s contemporary roles and power in families in diverse cultural contexts, the roles and power in families of the "helping professions," globalization, family diversity and the normalization of family life, the state regulation of families, and the compatibility of parents’ and children’s rights.
