Join a <http://chronicle.com/colloquy/2005/05/marriage/>live, online 
discussion with Stephanie Coontz, a historian at Evergreen State College 
and the director of research and public education for the nonprofit Council 
on Contemporary Families, about the changing definition of marriage and the 
implications for society at large, on Thursday, May 5, at 1:30 p.m., 
Eastern time.

Unfortunately, you can participate in this only if you are a subscriber to 
Chronicles of Higher Education. I will have access to the exchanges, 
however, and will post some or all of them to the list tomorrow.

Stephanie was a leading theorist of woman's liberation in the American SWP 
during the 1970s. She is now a highly regarded academic who has not lost 
her class perspective. I imagine that the discussion will be most 
interesting, especially in light of all the bullshit about "traditional 
values" in the 2004 elections.
