LGBT Leadership Conference 2013
The LGBT Resource Center at Kansas State University will proudly host the 2nd Annual LGBT Leadership Conference in Fall of 2013. Due to the success of the 2011 and 2012 conferences, this year's conference will be a two day event featuring featured speakers and an academic component for students and faculty to present academic research in gender and sexuality.
Kansas State University
LGBT Leadership Conference:
School of Leadership Studies
The focus of the LGBT Leadership Conference at Kansas State University is to examine how the daily lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals are inherently entwined with concepts of gender, race, ethnicity, spirituality, class, culture, and sexuality. Identity represents a crucial epistemology within our educational and societal development that continues to often be neglected in mainstream discourse on American culture. Through the representation of multiple identities in embodied lived experience 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 identity within or in conjunction with any of the following:
Race, ethnicity, and heritage
Political and social paradigms
Sexuality: Homosexuality, Heterosexuality, and those beyond the binary
Gender: Femininity and Masculinity
Landscapes of ecology and environment
Place and space
Please check back with us for the finalized dates of the conference and further information!
Abstracts for presentations and work-shops will be accepted after individual registration is complete. If you have questions concerning presenting and/or conducting a work-shop please contact the LGBT Resource Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785.532.5299.
