The class this fall 2015 is WGS335/SW360K/TD357: Confronting LGBTQ Oppression, F 11:30-2:30
Taught by Dr. Kristen Hogan, Education Program Coordinator, Gender & Sexuality Center
Together, we’ll make a difference on campus by:
* Using theatre for dialogue to enact LGBTQIA justice;
* Naming how LGBTQIA oppression is interconnected with racism, sexism, classism, & ableism;
* Making campus safer for (& among) LGBTQIA folks.

Here’s how it works:
During the fall we learn about LGBTQIA people’s identities, naming of systems of oppression, and advocacy. At the end of the fall and the beginning of the spring we work together to create a series of performance-based workshops on LGBTQIA justice. And, in the spring, we put our knowledge to work across campus by facilitating these workshops in classes, for student organizations, in dorms, and at open trainings to make the campus safer for and among LGBTQIA folks.
Let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to seeing your application!
