Using Queer and Trans* Pedagogy Tools in the Classroom and Research 

1:00 Session

Presenters: Dr. Donna Harrington-Lueker, Dr. Tara Brooke Watkins, Dr. Kathleen Muirhead, & Dr. Matthew Ramsey

What does applying a queer pedagogy in the classroom look like in practice? How has Jack Halberstam’s work influenced Salve faculty research? How might an embrace of trans* experiences open up possibilities for student creativity, performance, classroom engagement and research?
Each panelist will share their thoughts and experiences on these topics. We encourage students and faculty both to join us to share their own experiences of how successful classroom cultures have impacted their learning.
