‘Genderqueer’ – an innovative research event

Spotlight on: Genderqueer will be an open, friendly and participatory event intended to represent a diverse range of research addressing themes that speak to, relate to, or interact with the concept of ‘genderqueer’ whilst  breaking down boundaries between researchers and community members. It will build upon the successes of the 2010 Spotlight on: Asexuality event.

As well as bringing together researchers in the UK, we aim to use video conferencing software to allow researchers from around the world to present their work.The event will take place at the University of Warwick on Monday 29th April.

We realise that this isn’t an easy place to get to, particularly on a Monday afternoon, even for those who live in the UK. We also realise that there are lots of people who will be interested around the world. We’re therefore doing our best to make the event as remotely accessible as we possibly can.

At the very least this will involve recording the sessions as podcasts and posting them online. However we’re aiming to (a) film the sessions and put them on YouTube and (b) live stream the event and allow people to ask questions and participate remotely.

More information on the event will follow soon. Watch this space!
