The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions (San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015)

Sunday, July 13, 2014 - 12:45pm
SDSU LGBTQ Research Consortium

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:

• 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.
