Queer Studies Conference

The UNC Asheville Queer Studies Conference (established in 1998) attracts an international audience of activists, academics, community members, and artists who showcase a range of creative and scholarly pursuits related to the study of genders and sexualities. We invite a diverse representation of approaches and participants, including academics (faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students) and community members (leaders, organizers, activists). The conference takes place in Asheville, NC every other year.
