The Standard North American Family: SNAF as an Ideological Code.
Smith, Dorothy E.
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n1 p50-65 Mar 1993
Describes Standard North American Family as ideological code, analogous to genetic code, reproducing its characteristic forms and order in multiple and various discursive settings. Explores its operation in two such settings: study of the work that women do as mothers in relation to their children's schooling, and Wilson's consideration of African-American family in his study "The Truly Disadvantaged."
