Out in the Workplace
 
Out in the Workplace panel with the LGBT Studies Program on campus. While planning is still in motion, the goal is to bring activists and professionals to discuss the process of coming out and the status of LGBTindividuals in the workplace. This event, which would allow open attendance, would be especially beneficial to students aspiring to enter the professional world and faculty members who are tentative about being out at work.

Women's History Month Lecture 
March 23rd, 2017 at 5pm, Location TBD 
 
The Department of History is currently coordinating with Dr. Katie Hindmarch-Watson of Johns Hopkins University for her to speak on March 23, 2017 as this year’s Women’s History Month speaker.
A major up-and-coming scholar in Modern British history, Dr. Hindmarch-Watson combines histories of sexualities, gender, and labor to consider power and agency in the processes of industrial working-class formation. Her research has uncovered how boy prostitutes and femal cross dressers fit into networks of broader class politics.
For UNT's History Department Women's History Month event she will speak about "The BBC, public uplift, and queer modernism: the interwar 'talks' experiment.” More about Dr. Katie Hindmarch-Watson can be found here: http://history.jhu.edu/directory/katie-hindmarch-watson/
