The Tenth Annual DC Queer Studies Symposium

A One-Day Conference at the University of Maryland

April 21, 2017, College Park, MD

Free and open to the public

In 2006 a group of faculty from schools in the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area formed to discuss new works in the field and to exchange, support, and cultivate new ways of engaging with LGBT/Queer/Sexuality Studies across the disciplines and across institutions. That group, the DC Queer Studies Consortium, was integral to the inception of the first DC Queer Studies Symposium in 2008. The University of Maryland is proud to be hosting the tenth annual DC Queer Studies Symposium in 2017.
