Adoption: Secret Histories, Public Policies: Third International Conference on Adoption and Culture

Saturday, May 2, 2009 - 10:17am
Marianne Novy/Sally Haslanger/Emily Hipchen/Alliance for the Study of Adoption and Culture

Adoption has often, though not always, involved secrecy. How has secrecy or openness affected the history, experience, and representations of adoption? How have literature and film portrayed the impact of secrecy and disclosure on adoptees, birthparents, adoptive parents? What is the impact of recent revelations of secret histories in memoir, books such as _The Girls Who Went Away_, documentaries such as _First Person Plural_ (the creators of both will be keynote speakers)? How and why did adoption secrecy, and the practices it hides, develop differently in different cultures, countries, and even different states? Where are alternatives to secrecy practiced and how do they work?
