The women’s & gender studies program (WGS) will host “Becoming Visible: A Queer Space in the Society for American Archaeology” from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, March 6, in Wiekamp Hall room 2264.

The forum will be led with a talk by Dawn Rutecki, a Future Faculty Teaching Fellow.

Rutecki is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Anthropology and says that anyone is welcome to come to the forum.

The forum is informal and several students bring their lunches and it is a very relaxed environment. It will begin with Rutecki’s talk for about 20 to 30 minutes, followed by what Rutecki said will be “a group brainstorming session.”

The brainstorming session is to get people from different departments on campus talking. Rutecki said it is about “getting people together and community and allies with LGBTQ and making broader networks.”

Different faculty and students from different programs at IU South Bend are welcome to the event and are encouraged to brainstorm different ideas on how foster networking between different departments of studies.

The public forum is not restricted to WGS or anthropology majors. For questions about the event, contact Dawn Rutecki at drutecki@indiana.edu or the Director of Women’s & Gender Studies April Lidinsky at alidinsk@iusb.edu.
