Following the success of their first LGBT+ research showcase in LGBT History Month, ‘Celebrating LGBT+ research at Newcastle University’, the steering group of Rainbow@ncl (the University’s network for LGBT+ staff and PGRs and their allies) wants to find out more about research and teaching across the institution that’s relevant to LGBT+ lives and cultures.
They’d like to create opportunities for colleagues and students with related interests to share expertise and ideas, and to use their social media presence to increase the visibility of the richly various work underway across the university.
You are therefore invited to share information about any LGBT+ related content in UG and PG modules you teach or projects that you offer to/carry out with students; and in your research, whether for a post-graduate degree or as a member of staff.
Please send any information you would like to share – including links as appropriate – to the Rainbow Network Assistant, Luke Green. Luke will collate it and make it visible via the network’s webpage.
They also plan to organise another showcase event: if you would be interested in taking part – to talk about research and/or teaching – please do let Luke know.
