GAY AND LESBIAN STUDIES
“Curved Like a Road through Mountains”: Protest and Possibilities, or Sites and Spaces for the Work of Human Rights
Following this year’s conference theme, this panel seeks papers that consider the relationship between human rights and Gay and Lesbian Studies. How do human rights inform our work? How can these connections influence our interactions with students, co-workers, etc? How does the issue of human rights affect discussions of recent political and social events in our classrooms? All papers on related themes and issues welcomed; possible topics include representation and the Work of GLBQT Rights; Rights in the Age of Change and Hope; Prop 8; Repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell;” Academic Institutions as Sites for Change; etc. By June 15, 2009, please send a three-hundred-word abstract and one page bio to Jamie Libby Boyle at boylej@mailbox.sc.edu.
