Queering Academic Studies

The Queering Academic Studies RIG is a networking and reading group, meeting bi-weekly to discuss articles, book chapters, and works-in-progress on queer theory and its intersections within a broad range of disciplines.  Our aim is to promote an open exchange of ideas and to foster cross-disciplinary alliances and projects within the queer discourse community at the UO.

The group is open to anyone interested in queer studies—particularly graduate students—who are in departments including (but not limited to): literature and literary criticism, women’s and gender studies, feminist studies, ethnic studies, communication and media studies, technology and new media studies, film studies, folklore, anthropology, sociology, environmental studies, education, performance studies, philosophy, political science, psychology, religious studies, and urban studies.
