Los Angeles Queer Studies Conference 2007
Organized by the UCLA Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies Program. Asia-related presentations are highlighted.
Friday, October 19, 2007
1:00 PM - 5:30 PM
This year's LA Queer Studies Conference is the successor to the QGrad conferences held annually at UCLA beginning in 1999. Although we have abandoned the conference for graduate students only, we have encouraged substantial graduate student participation, since one of the goals of the current format is to foster the exchange of ideas between graduate student and faculty scholars.
