In celebration of Trans Awareness Week we've organised events to progress trans education & inclusion work at Warwick.
We would also encourage you to watch the recording of the queer/disrupt and Campus Pride 2020's collaboration 'Trancestry', in which Hannah Ayres introduces us to individuals from across history who can be considered part of trans history.
Trans & Queer Pedagogies Learning Circle
Wednesday 2nd December
Join the circle here
This WIHEA learning circle is open to all with an interest in trans & queer pedagogies at Warwick. The group engages in discussion, explores existing literature and practice and shares teaching and learning practices, as well as exploring the trans student learning experience. Intended outcomes from the learning circle include a greater awareness of the trans student experience, the concept and practice of queer pedagogy and the provision of guidance through case study, workshops and collaboration between peers.
