To build on the discussions FGSS started around transpedagogy last quarter, Dr. Stryker will talk about the work she has done at the University of Arizona to implement a Transgender Studies program, including the creation of four tenure-track lines and developing a trans studies curriculum. She will focus on pedagogical tips, reaching today’s learners, and engaging with trans topics in the classroom. This is a rare opportunity to learn from a leader in the field and ask any questions you may have about addressing trans students, engaging students in academics on trans topics, etc.
Susan Stryker is Associate Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies, as well as Director of the Institute for LGBT Studies; she also holds a courtesy appointment as Associate Professor in the Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences. She is the author of many articles and several books on transgender and queer topics, most recently Transgender History (Seal Press 2008). She won a Lambda Literary Award for the anthology The Transgender Studies Reader (Routledge 2006), and an Emmy Award for the documentary film Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria (Frameline/ITVS 2005).
This discussion with Dr. Susan Stryker will take place over wine and snacks in the Terrace Room of Margaret Jacks Hall, building 460 on Wednesday, Jan. 6th, 5-6:30pm
