A Global Change: Queering Policy and Perspective
LGBT Leadership Conference at Kansas State University
October 10-11, 2014
at K-State School of Leadership Studies
The focus of the Fourth Annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexal, and Transgender (LGBT) Leadership Conference is an examination of how the daily lives of lgbt individuals are entwined with concepts of national and international intersectional ties. Communal and individual concepts of identity represent a crucial epistemology within educational and societal development that continues to often be neglected in mainstream discourse on globalization and international policy. Through the representation of multiple global identities within conversations about gender and sexuality, scholars can continue to evaluate and expose how daily perception; whether societal or self; can create paths of acceptance and visibility within and for the LGBT community.
This conference welcomes contributions of research that explore themes of sexuality and gender identity within or in conjunction with any of the following:
- Race, ethnicity,and heritage
- National/International political and social paradigms
- Global Sexuality: Homosexuality, heterosexuality, and beyond the binary
- Gender: Femininity, masculinity and beyond the binary
- Feminist landscapes of ecology and environment
- Global class systems
- Place and space
Abstracts for presentations and work-shops will be accepted at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions concerning presenting and/or conducting a work-shop please contact the LGBT Resource Center at email@example.com or 785.532.5352.
