Reinventing Family: The Rise of Non-Normative Households in South Korea

Monday, October 5, 2020 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Virtual Event

The transformation of family patterns in advanced capitalist societies has received much attention in academic and popular writing. While “modern families” are widely accepted in Europe, alarm and anxiety characterize the tenor around the changes in East Asian family structures.  South Korea serves as a case study to understand the mechanisms driving the diversification of family structures including single-parent households, multicultural families, unmarried singles, and (the isolation of) senior citizens.
