∇ gender roles and identity politics
∇ queer activism
∇ same-sex marriage
∇ intersections of race, disability, and/or class
∇ queer pedagogy, curriculum and campus activism
We welcome a range of approaches and participants, including faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students. All formats will be considered, including paper presentations (15-20 minutes), panels, workshops, exhibitions and performances. Panels will consist of 3 or 4 papers.
