Intersections of Queer Symposium

March 16th, 9:30am-4:00pm, Education South B19 (basement level)

The Intersections of Queer Symposium (IQS) is an attempt to create spaces for critical engagement with the complexities of LGBTQ+ experiences, bodies, identities and communities. Based on a structural engagement with the intersections of queer identity, our goal is to support a series of workshops, panel discussions, and facilitated spaces that share knowledge and engage collaborative learning around issues of race, class, ability, gender, age, mental health, spirituality, ethnicity, Indigeneity, and citizenship in relation to queerness.

This year, the structure of IQS will consist of three session blocks, each of 1.5 hour in length. The session blocks are comprised of two concurrent panels and/or workshops, for a total of 6 available sessions to choose from. IQS will take place in the Education South Building, rooms B18, B19, and B76. Check in table will be outside of B19.

You are free to come and go to any of the sessions throughout the day. Snacks throughout the day and lunch will be provided, complete with GF and Vegan meals.

RSVP information and space accessibility notes to follow soon.

This year we are partnering with Alberta Public Interest Research Group and the Community Social Work Team to bring you an immerse and enlightening experience!
