Introduction to Being An Active Bystander
Friday 27th November, 12-1:30pm

The Active Bystander Introduction workshop focuses on three questions:

  • What do our community values look like in practice?
  • How can we build a community that embodies our values?
  • How do we respond when something happens which is contrary to our values?

The workshop provides an introduction to our role as (active) bystanders within the university community (and beyond), and supports participants on their journey towards possessing the knowledge, skills and confidence to make safe, effective interventions.

  • What issues do trans staff and students face in a university environment?
  • What is being done at Warwick towards the goal of trans inclusion?
  • What support do trans colleagues and students need?
  • What tangible things can each of us do to build a trans-inclusive university environment?

Queering University – what, how, why, where, and when?
Tuesday 8th December, 1-2:30pm

Register here

The ‘Queering University’ project will support staff and students at Warwick to develop, implement and sustain queer pedagogies, as well as broadening them across the university. It will encourage teaching & learning practices that are inclusive of trans and LGBTUA+ people, and provide greater understanding to those in the classroom setting.

Ultimately, the project hopes to embed & centre queer perspectives, with the goal of understanding and improving student experience and dismantling barriers that hinder community/belonging, attainment, continuation/completion, and academic progression (including from undergraduate to postgraduate study).

We invite you to join us in determining a collective vision for this project.

 

Queer Pedagogy, Queer History, and the Road to Inclusion
Wednesday 9th December, 6:30-8pm

Facebook live event

This event is part of the Hidden Histories alternative lecture series, in collaboration with queer/disrupt.

Hannah Ayres is a third year PhD student in the department of Sociology at the University of Warwick. She is researching queer re/presentation in museums and how queer individuals create, critique, and internalise these re/presentations. She has previously taught on modules to do with gender, research methods and queer theory. Hannah has also helped to produce guidance for the University of Warwick on inclusive teaching for trans and gender-diverse students (https://warwick.ac.uk/.../interd.../genderinclusiveteaching/).

In this event, she looks at the question “What does inclusion look like in university classrooms?”
