Workshop on Transpedagogy and Engaging Today's Learners with Dr. Susan Stryker

To build on the discussions FGSS started around transpedagogy last quarter, Dr. Stryker will talk about the work she has done at the University of Arizona to implement a Transgender Studies program, including the creation of four tenure-track lines and developing a trans studies curriculum.
