LGBT Politics Under the Marriage Amendment

Legal arguments for same-sex marriage are widely regarded as harmoniously aligned with arguments for racial justice. But are they? Do the logics of constitutional marriage equality arguments, for example, support the affirmation or elimination of affirmative action programs? How might arguments for marriage equality better engage ongoing efforts in pursuit of racial and sexuality justice? Professor Marc Spindelman, the Isadore and Ida Topper Professor of Law at Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University, explores these crucial questions. His research focuses on problems of inequality, chiefly in the context of sex and death. He regularly teaches courses on Family Law, Constitutional Law, Advanced Constitutional Law, Bioethics and Public Health Ethics, and Sexual Violence. He has published widely on feminism, progressive constitutionalism, abortion, prostitution, physician-assisted suicide, and marriage equality. This event is free and open to the public.
