UCI Talks Sex and Gender:

Law & The Modern Family


The UCI Talks Sex and Gender Colloquium Series unpacks critical and urgent conversations at the intersections of gender, sex, sexuality, law, and society. In its final event of the year, it looks at the modern family and all of its hopeful, stressful, and complicated forms. Today’s modern family is blended not only by second marriages, but also by race, same-sex, religion international statuses, and military families experience both husbands and wives in deployment. However, with breaking barriers, modern families also confront push back and backlash: some states seek to ban gay parents from adopting, modern families are policed for their immigrant and legal statuses, and domestic violence remains a vibrant issue. This colloquium offers probing insights into these important issues.
