TRANSITIONS

Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.

Definition: We talk about transitions between time periods, technologies, genres, social movements, sciences, mathematics, design and how big and small ideas permeate movements in society. What this theme should then encourage is the ability to demonstrate analysis and hold discourse on topics related to transitions applicable to any and all disciplines.

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 1:45pm

SDSU LGBTQ Research Consortium
contact email: 

As LGBTQ Studies finds disciplinary space on a growing number of university and college campuses, questions about the cultural and intellectual effects of academic institutionalization have become progressively more urgent:

• Where is the broad field of LGBTQ Studies heading?
• Where has it been? How might we negotiate the relationship between intellectual inquiry and social movements?
• In what ways might the epistemological concerns of LGBTQ Studies affect the pedagogical imperatives of the classroom (and vice-versa)?

"The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies" is a two-day conference devoted to exploring these and related questions.
