Queering Social Justice Symposium

Queering Social Justice Symposium
Queering Social Justice Symposium Portland State University 2018

The Queering Social Justice Symposium (QSJS) is envisioned as a gathering for faculty and advanced graduate students in the Northwest to collaborate and connect around issues in queer studies and social justice, especially at the intersections of sexuality, race, gender, Indigeneity, disability, class, culture, and migrations. We work from, within, and across traditional academic disciplines to foster new imaginings of scholarship, art, activism, community engagement, and teaching.

This inaugural event will include dinner (for registrants) followed by an evening public plenary session on Thursday, May 31; then, on Friday, June 1, the Symposium will have three focused roundtable sessions with time to debrief with the larger gathering (continental breakfast and lunch included).  These roundtable sessions will allow us to dialogue about our scholarship, research, teaching, curricular efforts, art, activism, and community engagement.  


Plenary Speakers:

Michelle Habell-Pallan (U of Washington), Ernesto Martinez (U of Oregon),

Sherene Razack (UCLA), C. Riley Snorton (Cornell U)
