Queer Inroads: Two Queer Higher Education Symposia Reviews Written Otherwise
Burford, James; Henderson, Emily F.
Higher Education Research and Development, v34 n4 p801-807 2015
This article is a review approached by the authors as a writing experiment of two recent gatherings where queer theory and Higher Education (HE) Studies met: "The Queerly Theorising Higher Education and Academia: Interdisciplinary Conversations" symposium held at the University College London (UCL), Institute of Education (IOE), (London, UK), December 8, 2014, and "The Queering Higher Education" symposium held at the Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE), Annual Conference in Newport (Wales, UK), December 10-12, 2014. At the same time as reviewing these two events, this paper responds to the question: how might the genre of the conference review itself be queered? The delegates that attending agreed that the symposium had made an important contribution to the conference as a whole, however, in order to raise the profile of queer research into HE, it was suggested that there was scope for a network to be formed in this area of research.
