The second “OUT THERE” Conference of Scholars and Student Affairs Personnel Involved in LGBTQ issues on Catholic Campuses will take place at DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois on October 19 and 20, 2007. It is open to faculty, staff, and students involved in LGBTQ issues on Catholic campuses. The first “OUT THERE” Conference was held at Santa Clara University in 2005 and included approximately 150 participants from over 40 colleges and universities.
We are calling for proposals for papers, roundtable presentations, panels, and/or workshops that address issues of scholarship, curriculum, pedagogy, campus climate, and support for LGBTQ students, faculty, and staff. We aim to build a program that addresses a wide range of issues of relevance to LGBTQ faculty, staff, and students at Catholic institutions, from nuts-and-bolts organizing in student services to the place of LGBTQ Studies at Catholic universities and the challenges of Catholic identity for LGBTQ individuals.
We invite proposals for papers, presentations, panels, and/or workshops on the following themes:
BEST PRACTICES IN ACADEMIC AND/OR STUDENT LIFE PROGRAMS
BUILDING CURRICULUM, IMPROVING PEDAGOGY
CATHOLIC TEACHINGS AND SEXUAL IDENTITIES ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES
CREATING COMMUNITIES ON OUR CAMPUSES
