This interdisciplinary FIG, open to full-time and adjunct faculty, as well as staff, encourages conversations around representation, visibility, and social action within the queer communities. While encouraging conversation specifically around curricular issues (e.g., representation, meaningful integration, and social action through curricula), the FIG will also address larger issues confronting queer communities (including scholarly communities as well as communities in which we live).
Attending to group interests, academic guest speakers will be invited to share scholarship that can support conversations around LGBT issues and themes. Members who self-identify under the queer spectrum (lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, genderqueer, etc.) and allies are welcome to join this FIG and help guide conversation.
