The Sexuality & Space Group at the University of Sydney invites expressions
of interest to participate in a one day workshop coinciding with Queer
Thinking, the launch event of the 2012 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.

The workshop will be held on Friday February 24 at the University of
Sydney's Camperdown campus. Queer Thinking then follows on Saturday,
February 25, at the Seymour Centre in Camperdown. The Saturday event
includes a public lecture by special guest speaker, Professor Sara Ahmed.
We are seeking interest from students and scholars working in queer theory
around Australia who would like to present papers on the Friday workshop
based on their research or activism. Leading scholars in the field of
gender, sexuality and queer studies will be in attendance to offer feedback
for the presentations.
The day will comprise of two plenary sessions at each end of the day and a
series of student panels selected from submissions.

Please Note: The theme of the workshop aims to be broad enough to include as
many students as possible working in the fields of gender, sexuality studies
and queer theory. Sydney Mardi Gras and Sydney University will provide
travel bursaries for selected interstate students seeking to present their
Abstracts of 200 words and a 200 word biographical note detailing the
benefits of coming to this event should be sent to Kane and Melissa by
