Call for Panel Presenters
Queering Higher Education Panel at SRHE Conference 2014
If your work is related to where Queer Studies meets the topic of Higher Education, academia or universities, you are cordially invited to consider participating in the panel I am convening at the SRHE (Society for Research into Higher Education) annual conference this year.
The conference is largely untouched by queer (and LGBT) theory or research, so this panel will aim to get these issues and modes of theorising more recognised in the field of Higher Education Studies in the UK. The panel will therefore showcase a variety of current work, and scholars from any stage of their career (including doctoral students) are invited to respond.
The panel will focus on demonstrating the relevance of queer to a variety of higher education contexts; each presentation will take a particular place or context in higher education and relate it to an aspect of queer identity and/or theory (including queer research methodologies). So far, ideas include the queering effects of international conference spaces, trans* experiences and theorisations of campus, and queer pedagogy in the higher education classroom. International perspectives are most welcome.
To complete the panel, I am looking for up to four more presenters (for c. 20min presentations).
If you are interested, please send me your name and affiliation and a very short description of your intended presentation (approx. 100 words) by Friday 23rd May.
If selected, I will inform you over that weekend, and then you will have until Wednesday 18th June to produce the obligatory abstract and 1,000-word paper (see below).
I have provided further information about the conference in this message, below my signature.
Please check that you can manage the dates, submission requirements and costs. The conference is not cheap!
If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch: email@example.com
I look forward to hearing from you,
