CFP Family in Film, Deadline for Abstracts: Dec. 1

Friday, October 1, 2010 - 11:05am
Jana Toppe / Jura Gentium Cinema

Leo Tolstoy opens his masterpiece Anna Karenina with the sentence "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."
The family, a key structure to society, is a unit so basic that we hardly give it any thought. Yet its composite is always changing, and with it its depiction in the arts.
Leaving the biological factor of consanguinity aside, families are social institutions that aid in the socialization of children, and literally offer a home and solidarity to its members. Family life already differs by class as well as different religious or ethnic backgrounds.
