The Gender Project
The Gender Project is a series of documentaries about the lived experiences of gender and sexuality. It’s also a queer feminist dissertation research project set within the academic power structure.
Queer Theory Playground
QTP uses play as methodology to experiment with and examine queer identities, bodies, and practices in communities. Research questions for us include: How can we queer gender performances in academic/digital/community spaces? How can we use play as it’s theorized/practiced in terms of sex and gender identity/expression as a methodology for doing queer work? How do you share the results of play with wider audiences?
To contribute to the field of queer rhetorics, theories and methodologies, and to have fun, damn it. We understand play as:
- low stakes explorations vs. answer-seeking
- the ways we negotiate relationships with each other as research collaborators and co-conspirators, as well as with the LGBTQ communities (academic and non-academic) where we do our work.
