Academia@WorkplacePride Webinar

November 23 @ 12:00 PM 1:00 PM Europe/Amsterdam

We are pleased to invite you to the Academia@WorkplacePride live webinar in our “Keeping Members Connected” series on Monday November 23rdat noon CEST.

The topic of academia and the inherent challenges for LGBTI persons studying or working within its many layers, is an area sorely in need of attention and discussion. After the inaugural webinar on the 24thof August 2020, Academia@WorkplacePride wants to make further progress and look more deeply into substantive topics.

“Queering the Curriculum” 

In this webinar we will focus on the educational aspects of academia and it particular the curriculum. Is there am LGBTI lens on the curriculum? If so what are the implications and is this as relevant in the STEM disciplines  as it is in the humanities and the social sciences.

Speakers from the universities of Amsterdam and Leiden will discuss how they can be more inclusive on the basis of the following questions:

  • What does it mean to ‘queer’ a curriculum?
  • What is heteronormative in your discipline?
  • How do different faculties incorporate queer concepts?
  • Is the curriculum queered in the Netherlands just like as in other countries or are their national differences? 


As always with our webinars there’ll be a live Q&A section from the viewers which always deepens the panel format.

This webinar is for members as well as the general public, freely accessible for all after registration. We hope you all can attend!
