Z Nicolazzo: Fostering Inclusivity for Trans* Students in College
February 22, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
* Has LGBTQ content
* May be of interest to the LGBTQ community
Join the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) for a talk with Z Nicolazzo, the author of “Trans* In College: Transgender Students’ Strategies for Navigating Campus Life and the Institutional Politics of Inclusion.”
Although trans* students have increased in visibility on college campuses, administrators, faculty, and staff have struggled to create campus climates that fully embrace gender diversity. Dr. Nicolazzo (pronouns: ze/hir and she/her/hers), an assistant professor in the Adult and Higher Education program at Northern Illinois University, will discuss several recent studies she has done with and related to trans* college students. Centered on the narratives of trans* students, she will invite participants to think critically about their roles in forwarding liberatory, gender-based practice on college campuses.
Dr. Nicolazzo will also explore policy-based recommendations related to trans* student success, including what faculty, staff, and administrators can do to foster inclusive environments.
This event is cosponsored by UW’s Center for Research on Gender and Women and Trans Research Lab and is free and open to the public! Light refreshments will be served.
