New CASS Briefing: Opposing Gay Rights in UK Parliament
March 18, 2014
CASS has just released a new briefing of new research. This one is related to work done by Robbie Love and Paul Baker, on the topic of Opposing gay rights in UK Parliament: Then and now. In the briefing, they ask: How has the expression of opposition to gay rights changed in Parliamentary speeches in recent years? How are discussions of gay people involved in these changes? To what extent could these arguments be seen as homophobic?
The briefing is available here: http://cass.lancs.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/CASS-Gay-Rights.pdf
