LGBTQ Inclusivity in Higher Education Conference
Swansea University, in Collaboration with the University of South Wales and Cardiff University would like to announce a Call for Papers and Save the Date for the:
Second Annual LGBTQ Inclusivity in Higher Education Conference : Facing the Dragon
5th and 6th September 2017
Hosted and Presented by Swansea University, Wales, UK.
In this national conference on inclusivity in Higher Education, we will explore how to bring intersectionality into inclusive curricula across the Higher Education landscape, bringing equality home to the seats of learning and research.
We invite papers and posters on every aspect of inclusivity in HE, looking at the implementation of inclusive curricula, student and staff groups and networks, work on gender, trans* and transition, work on feminism, ethnicity, religion, age, occupation or identity, at the intersection of equality for staff and students. Maybe you have initiated a project to include more diverse authors on a curriculum, or signposted students to understanding the diverse backgrounds of leading figures in your field. Maybe you have published work that relates to inclusivity, or draw on diverse sources to develop your research and teaching practice. Maybe you work in an organisation that supports LGBTQ people and have insights from your own work to offer those within HE. We are looking for critical papers, discussion pieces, research, case studies and interactive workshops to develop inclusivity activities.
We invite scholars, activists, members of the community, students and others to submit abstracts of no more than 250 words, accompanied by a 50 word bio on any aspect of promoting inclusive curricula in HE, for either papers (15 minutes), interactive workshops (1 hour) or posters.
Deadline for Abstract Submission: 1 July 2017
Please send to: firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Abstract Submission’ in the subject line.
