During the twentieth century in the United States, numerous factors, including feminism, late
capitalism, the increasing acceptance of interracial marriage and calls for legalizing gay
marriage, as well as conservative backlashes against these movements, have profoundly altered
the way we view marriage. While the range of topics affecting marriage as well as potential
authors studied are open, papers examining how changing ideas about ethnic, racial, religious,
and/or sexual identity affect the treatment of marriage in late twentieth-century and early
twenty-first-century American literature are especially welcome. Please email 250-500 word
proposals to Kim Freeman at kimberlyfreeman1_at_yahoo.com or k.freeman_at_neu.edu by Oct. 10,
2007. NeMLA, Buffalo, April 10-13.
