Abstract: This paper explores the contributions of an ethic of care to a politics of rights through an analysis of strategies and discourses employed by the same-sex marriage movement to influence public opinion. Where other scholarship on rights and care often presents the two frameworks in opposition to one another, I argue instead that care provides the foundations on which rights claims can be given meaning. I contrast the campaign against California's "Proposition 8," in which the movement's exclusive focus on abstract ideals of equality and universal civil rights proved unsuccessful, to evidence suggesting that shifting national opinion in more recent years results largely from increased personal awareness of and contact with queer individuals. Through a closer analysis of the abstract "rights" discourse invoked in California, I argue that the concepts invoked are essentially meaningless without an underlying understanding of and empathy for the experiences of queer individuals and families. This understanding and empathy, I further claim, have been most effectively cultivated through relationality and attention to particularity, a framework more in keeping with a political ethic of care than with a pure politics of rights. Moreover, I argue that once these foundations are in place, the arguments based on universalism and equality -- values associated with a rights framework -- become intelligible, paving the way for significant shifts in public policy.

3. Campbell, C. Jean. "Personification, Framework, and Pisanello’s Poetics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, New York, NY, Hilton New York, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper will consider the role of personification—manifest in anthropomorphic watercraft, animated tapestries, and so on—in Pisanello’s work. It will discuss the relation of work (ergon) and framework (parergon) in a body of works where conventional distinctions between center and margin, subject matter and ornament, foreground and background, and find little hermeneutic purchase. Taking the Brenzoni Monument in the Church of San Fermo in Verona a case, my paper will examine personification as a central figure in a poetic process where painting (broadly inclusive of an array of practices including sculptural decoration) is imagined as framework in relation to the ongoing work of understanding and representing incarnation.
