From court decisions about the voting rights act to legislation involving abortion, many social issues are shaped by civil rights temporalities—narratives making amorphous conceptions of "how long," "time enough," and progress central to discussions of rights held by identity groups. These stories linking time, identity, and rights are not only told by jurists and legislators, but by news pundits, activists, and creators of popular cultural productions. This class will look at Supreme Court decisions, theorists of temporality, and a variety of cultural productions to explore the fictions told about identity, time, and rights in the United States.
