Dissertation: Why Bother Choosing Anyway?

Explaining the Emergence and Resilience of Rights Frames rooted in Immutability Claims

Dissertation Prospectus Defended: May 30, 2016

Chair: Kevin (Vin) Arceneaux, PhD American Politics, Temple University

Heath Fogg-Davis, PhD Political Theory, Temple University

Nora Jones, PhD Associate Director of Urban Bioethics, Temple University

In my dissertation, I explore the deployment and use of arguments which draw on the immutability of identities of historically stigmatized groups in order to promote rights for those groups. I conceptualize these immutability arguments as biologic frames, or biologic attributions. My project draws on and joins the literatures around framing (from political communication) and attribution theory (from psychology).
I focus on when and why these biologic attributions have been drawn on, by mass media and in policy discourse. I start with a study of the history of immutability arguments used regarding the LGBT community. Studying the history and dynamics of different frames for LGBT rights gives me a foundational theory for examining immutability frames in other contexts. I hope to use this theory to understand why biologic frames continue to be widely used, both in mass political communications as well as within many of these communities. This seems puzzling given the limitations immutability frames place on the agency and lived experience of members of these groups.
