Modern Family

Hello Willamette,

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays, we thought it would be appropriate to center the last issue of the semester around the new family unit. We asked the contributors to not only write about their families, but to also consider gender roles in the typical family structure, how the importance of family has changed over the years, the number of generations generally living together in a household, and the age at which most people move out of their family’s home.

Happy Holidays!

    Very difficult task – to describe not only the significance, but also number of generations, living together in a household, the age at which people usually move out, and finally gender roles. While the second and the third can be measured at some point, first and last are much more vague and uncertain categories. How can we consider gender roles, if since at least two decades father can be a woman, and the kid can call “mum” to a person with a foot-long beard. Much more things can /and should/ be said, but we’ll slide away of the topic.
