Who's Queer? Whose Queer?

University at Albany, SUNY

Conference Program

This year, our annual international student conference aims to broaden conversations between Queer Studies and Women's Studies.

Participants include both graduate and undergraduate students, as well as activists from diverse programs, institutions, and countries, including the U.S., Canada, and Australia.

Conference Mission

Every fall semester, graduate students in the Women's Studies department at the University at Albany organize an annual conference to address topics and themes relating to Women's Studies and feminisms. What first began as a class conference, in which students shared their papers with the public, has now evolved into an international conference. Our goal is to transcend gender, racial, national, and disciplinary borders in this quest for intellectual and activist community.
