DisQourse

The Diversity and Inclusion Student Commons invites students, staff, and faculty interested in expanding their exposure to critical theory, with particular emphasis placed on queer theory, to participate in DisQourse, a queer intersectional reading group.  DisQourse is designed to build community through critical analysis and group discussion of feminist, queer, crip, and critical race theory texts.  It is a purposive space geared toward investigating the intersection of queerness, gender identity, racialized subjectivity, disability, class, and all other intersections of identity. DisQourse offers a forum for the exploration of connections, attachments, and solidarities that may as yet have been unexplored by participants.

To express interest, please register HERE.

Meetings will take place bi-weekly beginning Thursday, February 8 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM in Jabs 305.  Interested participants are encouraged to attend this first meeting to contribute to developing a schedule of readings for the following five meetings.
