What is Family? GSU Sociology Professor’s Research on Polyamory

Check out GSU Sociology Professor Elisabeth Sheff‘s most recently published research:

Sheff, E. (2011). Polyamorous families, same-sex marriage, and the slippery slope. Journal Of Contemporary Ethnography, 40(5), 487-520.

Dr. Sheff’s research “extends sociological knowledge by (1) detailing some characteristics of a relatively unknown family form; (2) comparing same-sex families to poly families rather than heterosexual families; (3) contributing an alternative to the debate on same-sex marriage; and (4) exploring some of the implications these families hold for sociological
theory and society.” (p. 489)

Here are other books in the GSU University Library on polyamory:
