The Uses Of History In Struggles For Racial Justice: Colonizing The Past And Managing Memory, Katherine M. Franke Jan 2000

The Uses Of History In Struggles For Racial Justice: Colonizing The Past And Managing Memory, Katherine M. Franke

Faculty Scholarship

In this Commentary, Professor Katherine Franke offers an analysis on Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic's California's Racial History and Constitutional Rationales for Race-Conscious Decision Making in Higher Education and Rebecca Tsosie's Sacred Obligations: Intercultural Justice and the Discourse of Treaty Rights. These two Articles, she observes, deploy history for the purposes of justifying certain contemporary normative claims on behalf of peoples of color: affirmative action in higher education for Delgado and Stefancic, and sovereignty rights for native peoples in Tsosie's case. Franke explores the manner in which stories of past conquest and discrimination contribute to contemporary ...

The Eclectic Model Of Censorship, Kenji Yoshino Jan 2000

The Eclectic Model Of Censorship, Kenji Yoshino

Faculty Scholarship Series

Censorship used to be a very dull subject. Aligned along
predictable and venerable divisions separating liberals from
conservatives, oriented toward ancient and well-rehearsed
chestnuts such as obscenity and national security, the topic
promised little of analytic interest.
In recent years, however, the landscape of censorship has
altered dramatically. Now feminists in Indianapolis join with
fundamentalist Christians to seek the regulation of pornography.
Critical race theorists join with Jesse Helms to regulate hate
speech. Advocates of abortion rights seek to restrict political
demonstrations while conservative pro-life groups defend the
freedom to picket (p. 1).


The Epistemic Contract Of Bisexual Erasure, Kenji Yoshino Jan 2000

The Epistemic Contract Of Bisexual Erasure, Kenji Yoshino

Faculty Scholarship Series

In this article, Professor Kenji Yoshino seeks to explain why the category of bisexuality has been erased in contemporary American political and legal discourse. He first argues that the invisibility of bisexuality relative to homo- sexuality does not reflect the incidences of those orientations in the population. Defining bisexuality as the possession of more than incidental desire for both sexes, Yoshino shows that the major sexuality studies demonstrate that the inci- dence of bisexuality is in fact greater than or comparable to the incidence of homosexuality. Yoshino explains the erasure of bisexuality by positing that both self-identified heterosexuals and self-identified ...
