Guest speakers:

How do we place “queerness” in historical and cultural context in ways that keep both queer- and non-queer identified students engaged and non-defensive? How do we create an atmosphere in which thee are no “wrong” questions and at the same time queer students don’t feel marginalized and/or invisible? What paradigms can we explore outside the gender binary to frame queer pedagogy and social change? How can we use media as a queer pedagogical resource to explore these issues?

Sponsored by the Queering Academic Studies Research Interest Group, UO Center for the Study of Women in Society
