The Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies Council of Columbia University, with the Provost's Office for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of the Dean of Social Science in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences present Queer Disruptions: A Conference on Gender & Sexuality.
Scholars, activists and artists from the U.S. and abroad will convene to explore the ways that queer studies, policies and practices theorize, transform and reimagine scholarship and generate new social possibilities. Queer Disruptions extends Columbia University’s rich tradition of debate and research on the themes relating to gender and sexuality.
Our program organized the Vulnerability and Resiliency panel. Wendy Bostwick, Ph.D., M.P.H., Sari L. Reisner, Sc.D., Margaret Rosario, Ph.D., and Patrick Wilson, Ph.D. will focus respectively on lesbian and bisexual women, transgender health, L.G.B. youth, and gay and bisexual men and the intersection with race/ethnicity. Walter Bockting, Ph.D., will moderate the panel.
Additionally, photographer Mariette Pathy Allen, our collaborator, will show her transgender photography work during the opening session.
The conference will take on Thursday, October 13 at the Italian Academy (1161 Amsterdam Avenue) from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., and on Friday, October 14 at the Low Memorial Library (2960 Broadway) from 9:30 a.m. to 5:50 p.m.
