This course offers a perspective on the contemporary family and current debates on “family values” through studying the historical development of this important American institution. We will explore how dominant cultural, social, and political visions of “the family” have compared with the realities of everyday family life. We will pay particular attention to changing conceptions of motherhood and fatherhood, childhood and childrearing, marriage, and sexuality. We will also explore crucial interactions between political and economic structures and how race, ethnicity, gender, and class shaped conceptions of the role of the state in the American family. A central theme in this course will be to examine why and how we look to the past to find a “golden age” of the American family.
