Dr. Eli Kean will illuminate some of the ways teacher educators are conceptualizing ‘queer” in curriculum and pedagogical strategies: queer as an identity, queer as an embodiment/expression, queer as an analytical approach, and queer as a political project. They will also explore if and how these conceptualizations of queer are inclusive of transgender identities and experiences. Dr. Kean is Coordinator of the MU LGBTQ Resource Center and affiliate faculty in Women’s and Gender Studies. They earned their Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction at Michigan State University and Masters in Higher Education from UMKC. Eli has worked in higher education for over a decade, spanning instructional, research, and administrative roles. Information on their publication for this research discussion can be found on Mizzou IDE’s website: https://diversity.missouri.edu/2020/locating-transgender-in-the-language-of-queer/
