My newest blog on Psychology Today looks at resilience among poly family members and explains how polyaffectivity helps poly families stay in contact over long periods of time.

In Polyqueer: Gender, Race, and Polyamory, Dr. Mimi Schippers examines the racialized and gendered backdrop against which heterosexuality and monogamy play out in contemporary US culture. Focusing on multiplistic configurations of one woman with two men, Schippers provides a polyqueer reading of E.Lynn Harris’s Invisible Life and the film The Other Man. Going beyond the individual focus common in much discussion of polyamory, Polyqueer examines the potential collective impacts of non-monogamies. Schippers asks how hetero-masculinity – embodied in The Monogamous Couple – shapes institutional relationships. By exposing them as socially constructed, Polyqueer demonstrates that these hegemonic relationships are far from inevitable. Best of all, Schippers explores counter-narratives that cross racial and gendered boundaries, disturbing mononormativity and offering the potential for a reorientation of hierarchical institutions.
