The South and the Battle Over LGBTQ Rights
Jay Barth, Graves Peace Distinguished Professor of Politics, Hendrix College
Most of the lingering conflicts over LGBTQ rights are playing out in the South and will determine the pace of change regarding LGBTQ rights across the nation. Barth will examine the South's latest area of defiance; the expansion of LGBQT rights. Barth will analyze LGBTQ rights in the region examining public opinion change, the role of LGBTQ issues and actors in electoral politics, conflicts in the state legislative arena, and key state rulings.
