As part of the annual conference of CASWE within the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE), the QSEC SIG invites submissions from scholars, students, activists, educators, artists, and others who research or otherwise engage sexual and gender minority or queer issues in the study of education and culture. The SIG encourages submissions from the wide-ranging topics presently constituting queer research and practice in education and culture from cross-cultural, historical, political, policy, comparative, and other perspectives. The intention is to cover a diversity of topics, inviting stances and reflections from a variety of temporal, geographical, and interdisciplinary perspectives. QSEC also encourages a variety of types of submissions, including academic papers from across disciplines, creative submissions, performances, storytelling, visual arts, and other alternative formats.
