Queer/Feminist/Transgender* Reading Group

The Q/F/T* reading group is a part of the Humanities Institute’s 2014-2015 study of Queer/Feminist/Transgender* topics. The reading group is reading and discussing interdisciplinary texts that address/question notions of gender identity, sexuality, trans-identity, femininity, and masculinity. In November the group has decided to focus their discussion around Jack Halberstam’s Female Masculinity and Julia Serano’s Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive. The group meets one to two times a month on Fridays in the Humanities faculty room (2029). Since there is no set schedule, please email Andrew Rimby ( to be added to the Q/F/T* reading group list to stay up-to-date with the reading schedule.
