Respiro Libre: Coming Home to a Latina Lesbian Self: Race and Sexual Orientation in Legal Scholarship
Prof. Elvia Arriola, University of Texas School of Law
In this piece, based on her presentation at the January 1998, panel on "Race and Sexual Orientation in Legal Scholarship" at the American Association of Law School's conference, Professor Arriola examines her development as a Latina Lesbian legal scholar. She urges her academic colleagues to examine their privilege and underlying assumptions and exhorts them to focus on the intersections between race and sexual orientation to "produce healing, community and a commitment to coalition, not divisiveness in the politics of identity."
