Second Annual LGBTQ Inclusivity in Higher Education Conference:
Facing the Dragon

5th and 6th September 2017
Hosted and Presented by Swansea University, Bay Campus.

In this national conference on inclusivity in Higher Education, we will explore how to bring intersectionality into inclusive curricula across the Higher Education landscape, bringing equality home to the seats of learning and research.

Papers and workshops will be offered on many different aspects of inclusivity in HE, looking at the implementation of inclusive curricula, student and staff groups and networks, work on gender, trans* and transition, work on feminism, ethnicity, religion, age, occupation or identity, at the intersection of equality for staff and students.

Keynote Addresses will be given by Professor Cara Aitchison, President and Vice-Chancellor, Cardiff Metropolitan University: “From ‘marking difference’ to ‘making a difference’: the social-cultural nexus of power and personal responsibility in the leadership of higher education”, and Professor Martin Stringer, Pro-Vice Chancellor, Swansea University: “Herding dragons, intersectionality and the teaching of religion”. And a Plenary session will be led by Sian James, Welsh Labour Party politician and former MP for Swansea East, Sian James’ early political life story features in the film Pride.
