Every year the symposium is planned by a committee of staff, faculty, and students. Beginning in 2011 the symposium also opened up a proposal process for presenters interested in participating in the symposium.
The University of Colorado Boulder’s TRANSforming Gender Symposium is celebrating its eighth year! The Symposium hosts national and local transgender and genderqueer activists to address issues surrounding transgender, genderqueer and related identities. Previous presenters and participants have included academics, health professionals, community organizers, performance and visual artists, students, faculty, staff, youth, family members, community members and other interested folks.
We are calling for workshop and paper proposals from campus, local and national folks interested in presenting at the Symposium. Past symposiums have covered of the following topics as they relate to trans identities: spirituality, health care, transfeminism/transmisogyny, sexuality, poetry, media, racism and classism, mental health, sports and athletics, and much more.
Please visit the TRANSforming Gender Symposium proposal page for more information and to submit your proposal.
If you or your organization is interested in co-sponsorship please feel free to contact us regarding that as well.
