2017 Queer Places, Practices & Lives Symposium

Thursday, December 15, 2016 - 7:00pm

Queer Places, Practices, and Lives III
The Ohio State University
Columbus, OH
May 12-13, 2017

Confirmed Keynote Speakers: Mel Chen, Miss Major Griffin-Gracy

We invite proposals for the third queer studies conference at The Ohio State University. Following on the successes of the previous "Queer Places, Practices, and Lives" conferences—the first held in honor of former Buckeye Samuel Steward, who donated funds to further research in LGBTQ studies—we seek proposals on any topic related to the field. Scholars, faculty, staff, graduate students, undergraduate students, artists, activists, teachers, social workers, community members, and anyone else interested in discussing LGBTQ issues are encouraged to submit. We welcome individual submissions as well as panels and roundtables of three to four participants. Although the call is open to all topics, we hope to highlight, in part through the keynote speakers, current work being pursued on queer and trans relations, trans justice, and trans and intersex issues.

Send a 300-word abstract, 2-page CV, and, if appropriate, a brief panel or roundtable description to osuqueerconference@gmail.com <mailto:osuqueerconference@gmail.com>. Please include 3 keywords with your submission.

Deadline: Dec. 16, 2016.

Direct inquiries to Joe Ponce ponce.8@osu.edu.
