Susan Burgess, distinguished professor emerita of political science, Ohio University, will present the 2023 Constitution Day Lecture.

Drawing on her most recent book, LGBT Inclusion in American Life: Pop Culture, Political Imagination, and Civil Rights (NYU Press), Burgess uses civil rights narratives, pop culture, and critical theory, to show how exclusion was transformed into inclusion in US politics and society, as pop culture changed mainstream Americans thinking about “non-gay” issues, namely privacy, sex and gender norms, and family.
