On March 2, 2019, the Northwestern University Queer Pride Graduate Student Association (QPGSA) will host its 12th annual Queertopia Conference. Queertopia is an event that offers graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, activists, organizers, artists, and community practitioners the opportunity to build intellectual community and interrogate questions about gender and sexuality through art practice and performance, popular and academic research, and community engagement.
QPGSA invites submissions by January 4, 2019 of graduate, postgraduate, and practitioner research across disciplines around this year’s theme of LGBTQ+ Media Cultures.
This conference invites scholarship from a wide range of disciplines on the topic of LGBTQ+ media, communication, and technology. Topics the conference aims to explore include LGBTQ+ representation across media platforms, the role of media in social change, queer technologies, the role of media and communication in health and development, and learning with new media.
