Fourth annual event set for Nov. 13 at UCCS
By Staff

Registration has opened for the Fourth Annual Faculty Council GLBTI Symposium, set for 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 13 at Berger Hall, University of Colorado Colorado Springs.

The symposium is free and open to all CU faculty, staff and students.

With a theme of “Conversations That Matter,” the event provides a forum for the CU community to exchange ideas and learn new strategies for inclusivity.

Topics include:

  • Unconscious bias
  • Heteronomativity and assumptions
  • Gender identity and sexual orientation

The symposium also will feature an art exhibit, “Among Dreams,” which honors the voicing and traces the invisible histories of LGBTQI veterans and active-duty military through photographic portraits, quilt-work, text-based art and collages. Works incorporate new, appropriated and archival materials to interpret and explore interviews conducted since 2011 by artist Chelsea Rae Klein with soldiers and veterans in Colorado and across the U.S. Oral histories combined with soldiers’ nighttime dreams offer a visceral palette to re-form a landscape largely inhabited but widely unseen.
