Description:
"Perry, Windsor, and the Prospects for Marriage Equality: How We Got Here and What's At Stake"

 

Description:  As we await oral argument in the Marriage and DOMA cases pending before the Supreme Court, Segura examines the political and legal processes that got us here, the risks and possible rewards in each case for Lesbian and Gay families, how the politics of the Court and the outside world might interact to shape outcomes.  Segura will also discuss the critical issue of "political power," the concept in both political science and legal terms, and how our understanding of this term may ultimately shape the decisions in both cases.

 

Gary Segura is a Professor of Political Science at Stanford University.  He is the author or co-author of four books and 50 articles, including most recently "The Future is Ours: Minority Politics, Political Behavior, and the Multiracial Era of American Politics" (Congressional Quarterly Press) with UC-Riverside's Shaun Bowler.  Segura is the former president of the Midwest Political Science Association, and is President-elect of the Western Political Science Association.  In 2010, he was elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.  Segura served as an expert witness in both the Perry (Prop 8) trial and in the Windsor case.
