Feminist/Queer Praxis (FQP)
The Feminist/Queer Praxis lunchtime series, aimed at undergraduate audiences, brings artists, activists, scholars, and professionals to CSGS to talk about their work in the world as people committed to queer and feminist values and action. Previous speakers have included Amber Hollibaugh, a long time activist for economic justice, sexual liberation and LGBTQ human rights and author of My Dangerous Desires: a queer girl dreaming her way home; Jessica Halem, comedian and feminist/queer activist who served as a University of Chicago CAPS counselor and RH in the 90s; and SISTER SPIT, lesbian-feminist spoken-word and performance art collective.
Students are encouraged to attend the Center's Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop (GSSW) and graduate students are welcome to attend and participate in the Gender and Sexuality Studies Working Group. Click for more information on the workshop and working group.
