Additional Information

We invite you to join us at the 5th annual Q Scholars Undergraduate Research Symposium! As part of the 20th anniversary of UCLA’s LGBTQ Studies minor, the 2018 Q Scholars undergraduate research symposium will focus on the struggle, resistance, and resilience within queer narratives.

Questions and topics we will tackle at this symposium are: In what ways have queer voices/ narratives changed academia and the world we live in? How have queer individuals and their narratives overcome hate, oppression, and an often hostile society? What remains to be done? What can we do to continue to empower ourselves and others?

This year we are thrilled to feature panelists from a variety of disciplines and departments at UCLA and other universities that will help us answer some of these questions through the rich body of knowledge that these presenters have unearthed in their research.

This year we are also honored to welcome the artist, writer, and comedian D'LO as our Keynote Speaker!
