Fall 2017 Deep Dish

Deep Dish Lunchtime Speaker Series
When:  Thursdays from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm., Fall and Spring Semesters
 
Think deep (like "smart") and dish (like "gossip"), Deep Dish is our 10-times-a-semester, lunchtime speaker series that focuses on sharing and discussing LGBT-related research, community initiatives, and social justice issues. It's casual, conversational, informal--and best of all, there's free food. Deep Dish is our homage to an old-fashioned lesbian potluck, where we can build diverse networks and share information among faculty, students, staff, and community members interested in LGBT research and social issues. Most presenters are local, but we also feature presentations from visiting scholars when we are lucky enough to know about their visits in advance. 
 
Make Deep Dish part of your weekly routine!
 
The Particulars:
Casual. Deep Dish lasts just an hour, 12:30-1:30 p.m., Thursdays in the McClelland Park Building, 650 North Park Avenue, Room 206, on the University of Arizona campus.
 
Conversational. We start with 10 minutes or so of "dish" as we eat before the featured presentation, and we also leave plenty of time for conversation, questions, and feedback afterwards. 
 
Informal. Some presenters feel like reading a paper, but others talk in a less structured way for 15-20 minutes about something related to LGBT research, social justice issues, or community-building measures. 
 
Food. Did we mention the pizza? Veggie slices and water provided, but feel free to bring your own brown bag lunch if you prefer.
 
Please contact Alma Galindo at 520-626-3431 or e-mail her at almag@email.arizona.edu for more information and/or if you are interested in presenting at a future date.
