Q-LLAGE@TC “What Makes a Queer Scholar?” CONFERENCE 4/17 info + CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Shout out to the 27 of you who came to listen to Dean Zavadil last Wednesday, and those of you who asked questions!  Also special shout out to our guest from TC, Emma, for sharing with us information on QueerTC’s upcoming conference!  Here’s more information on the conference, along with a call for submissions and participation.

I’m really hoping to have a lot of Q representation at this conference.  You don’t need to be an aspiring academic to submit a paper, and don’t forget that this isn’t an academic conference… per se.  As Emma told us at the meeting; please feel free to submit art or other work you’ve done to be shown/presented at the conference!
