All in the Family: Interracial Intimacy, Racial Fictions, and the Law

18 Nov 2013 06:43pm D. Wendy Greene 

Professor Wendy Greene highlights the continued importance of analyzing interracial relationships in the framework of the law in her review of Professor Angela Onwuachi-Willig's book, According to Our Hearts: Rhinelander v. Rhinelander and the Law of the Multiracial Family. Professor Greene comments that given the Supreme Court's continued interest in cases involving marital and racial equality, a study of the legal history of interracial marriage in America, like that done by Professor Onwuachi-Willig, is both relevant and essential for understanding fundamental rights jurisprudence.

In her response to Innocence Interrupted: Reconstructing Fatherhood in the Shadow of Child Molestation Law (101 Calif. L. Rev. 609), Professor Melissa Murray compares contemporary criminal child molestation statutes to Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon, the all-observing watchtower that normalizes expectations of constant state surveillance. Arguing that the enforcement of child-molestation laws creates a near-constant sense of surveillance and encourages male and female caregivers to regulate their own behavior by adopting  the identities favored by the state, Professor Murray illustrates how such well-meaning statutes may, in fact, perpetuate outdated gender stereotypes.
