Development of transgendered rights subject of lecture at Marshall
Taylor will explore the development of transgender rights as a concern in governance. She also will explore the policy and political environment for trans identities in the United States, as well as the historic tensions within the gay rights advocacy movement over transgender inclusion and more recent concerns within the LGBT movement over policy priorities. Opportunities and challenges facing the LGBT movement will be addressed in Taylor's lecture.
Taylor conducts research related to LGBT rights and on public service motivation. Additionally, she and Donald Haider-Markel (University of Kansas) edited the forthcoming volume, Transgender Rights and Politics: Groups, Issue Framing, and Policy Adoption. This book, which focuses on the empirical study of transgender rights, politics and policy, will be published by the University of Michigan Press this summer.
Her visit to Marshall is sponsored by the Department of Political Science.
