Deep Dish Academy - An LGBTQ Brown Bag Lunch Series

Thursday, February 23, 2012 12:00 pm - Thursday, April 26, 2012 1:00 pm / McClelland Park Building Room 402 650 North Park Avenue (corner of Park and 4th)

Noon - 1:00 THURSDAYS Until April 26th!

The Deep Dish Academy recipe includes one slice of relaxed socialization, one slice of LGBTQ scholarly networking, and one slice of academic work. Bring your own cheesy crust. Faculty and graduate students from departments througout the University of Arizona community will present their LGBTQ related scholarship, get feedback on rough drafts, present finished articles, discuss chapters in progress, share conference papers, or workshop brand new ideas. Each session is comprised of a 15-20 minute presentation or conversation followed by feedback and questions sandwiched between socializing, networking, and--well--sandwiches. We'll supply the cookies. Consider making the Deep Dish Academy a regular part of your weekly routine and mark your busy calendar now for every Thursday at lunch time throughout the semester. Contact Lisa Logan at for more information if you are interested in presenting at one of our lunchtime discussions in the fall.
