LGBTQA Lunch Discussion Series (PLV)
Free lunch, enriching conversation, community building—what’s not to like? Join the LGBTQA Center for their fall 2018 series on Wednesdays!
The LGBTQA Center is serving up a very special discussion series all throughout the fall semester—not to mention free food. Join them on Wednesdays from 12:10 p.m.–1:10 p.m. in the Birnbaum Room at the Mortola Library as they tackle a variety of topics; everything from privilege to queer theory and much more.
Ask a Grown Up
Need the 411 from licensed professionals? Coordinator of Disability Services Lisa Ciccone and Postdoctoral Fellow Nick Jackson, PsyD, will be stopping in to offer guidance and answer questions. Ciccone, a licensed medical social worker, has experience working in a variety of settings including a mental health hospital, a nursing home, an early head start school, and a special education and alternative school for students with disabilities. Jackson has worked in a variety of clinical settings, including community mental health centers, several university settings, and outpatient substance use treatment. They’re here to help!
Power and Privilege
Jesse Zayas, a representative of the Putnam/Northern Westchester Women’s Resource Center, returns to Pace to educate on an important subject within the LGBTQA community. You might remember him from last year’s Title IX and Dine event where Pace students, faculty, and staff came together to address questions about sexual and relationship violence. This is a much-needed discussion!
Ever wondered what queer theory was all about? Interested in learning more—and perhaps even studying it for yourself? Associate Professor of English and leader behind the popular “Friday Film Series,” Rebecca Martin, PhD, will be discussing the field, which emerged in the early ‘90s. She’s joined by the Executive Director of the Faculty Center, James Stenerson, PhD, who is also an adjunct professor and co-advisor for the Gay-Straight Alliance student organization.
Meditating Conflict: Politics and Identities at Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving isn’t always happy; it can be a source of very real stress for many in the LGBTQA community. That’s what Tyler Kalahar hopes to address in his talk tackling the upcoming holiday season. Kalahar is a program coordinator at the Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) with a vested interest and extensive experience in facilitating social justice dialogue.
It’s absolutely necessary to dedicate time and space to discuss trans and gender nonconforming topics, particularly in this political climate. Join the LGBTQA Center and let your voice be heard!
End of Semester Celebration
It’s the perfect time to come together as a community after all that cramming you did leading up to finals. Time to let loose!
