The Queering University programme is currently in its first phase, consisting of four key projects:
Determining our Collective Vision
It is vital that the Queering University programme reflects the needs, struggles, desires and experiences of our community. The initial vision for the programme was set collectively at an open meeting in December 2020, and this collective vision setting will continue through the upcoming programme activities.
The programme's contact form welcomes comments, feedback, and suggestions from all members of the University community, and the project leads can be contacted via queeringuniversity at warwick dot ac dot uk.
Review of Existing Guidance, Resources & Support
The Queering University programme develops, implements and shares queer pedagogies and perspectives, and teaching & learning and pastoral practices which are inclusive of LGBTQUA+ people.
The programme recognises that members of the University community have engaged with this work prior to, and independent from, the Queering University programme. We are therefore working to identify and review existing guidance, resources and support available, and encourage submissions of those known to members of the University community.
Through this work we hope also to identify gaps in current provision, and welcome any suggestions for additional/improved guidance, resources and support.
Queering University Departmental Contacts
We are growing a network of departmental contacts to improve access to the programme across the University.
Departmental contacts act as an initial point of contact for the programme within their department, supporting others who wish to engage with the Queering University programme and ensuring that those in their department are aware of key programme updates and opportunities.
Any member of the University community can become a departmental contact. Those with an interest are encouraged to submit their details here.
Introductory Activities Programme
We are organising an initial programme of activities to engage members of the University community with the Queering University programme, its purpose and key themes, and create spaces to explore them together.
Events can be found on the programme's calendar, with suggestions for future events welcome. Other programme opportunities will be shared on an ongoing basis, and all members of the University community are welcome and encouraged to contribute.
