All About LGBTQ Studies Interest Group

Posted By Travers Scott, Tuesday, December 13, 2016

All methodologies of research studying sexuality and gender, whether by self-identified LGBTQ scholars or allies, are welcome in our interest group. Particularly of interest are measurements, histories, analyses, and critiques of sexual systems, discourses, and representations that impact, inform, and/or constitute LGBTQ lives and identities. These can occur in institutional, community, domestic, and intimate contexts; are closely connected to other social, cultural, and political practices (such as nationalism, education, or popular entertainment); and play a critical role in the formation and communication of individual and group identity. In addition, we welcome research that uses queer theory and queerness for analyzing systems of power. We encourage work from LGBTQ scholars working in collaborative research and/or community projects toward broader efforts in social justice. As LGBTQ people and issues traverse many research sites, we welcome diversity content and approaches.

Examples of recently accepted research topics include:

- Game design and content

- Public opinion on same-sex marriage 

- Sports, homophobia and coming out

- Health communication campaigns and representations regarding HIV and STIs 

- Social identity theory, gender and homophobia

- Analogy logics of the Holocaust, race, and LGBT rights

- Nontraditional family creation stories

- Digital activism, policies, and representations

- Contemporary and historic case studies of specific communities, nations, or cultures

- Corporate social responsibility

- College counseling efforts
