LGBT Studies

Susan Stryker, Ph.D., one of the leading voices in the field of transgender studies, will present Trans* (In My) Life, as the first Lecture on the Study of Gender and Sexuality at Kent State University. The talk will be in the Kent Student Center Kiva on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. 

How should gender and sexuality be taught and studied? It is a question that 90.3 WCPN ideastream presented to five panelists, including Kent State University’s Molly Merryman, Ph.D., coordinator of LGBT Studies and associate professor of sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Kent State University’s College of Arts and Sciences seeks to establish a faculty-led academic unit that will enable the expansion and integration of LGBT Studies and Women’s Studies programs. In the coming weeks, an advisory group of faculty and students will help develop the mission and structure of the new Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.
