QTIPOC Dinners are a series of events MESA and Spectrum Center have created together to center the experiences of queer and trans indigenous students & students of color in a relaxed environment. Each dinner is hosted by a local individual we believe can bring a lot to the metaphorical (and actual) table and free food is provided to all who attend. This dinner will feature food from Baba Dari Mediterranean Grill including Chicken Shawarma bowls, Falafel bowls, and Fattoush Salad

This month's host is Dominique Canning. Here's a little more about her:
Dominique is a Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics (with a focus on sociolinguistics and phonetics) and in her 4th year at the University of Michigan. She graduated in 2016 from Eastern Michigan University (EMU) where she was part of the McNair Scholars Program.

Dominique’s research is partially motivated by her own identity as a queer woman of color. She identifies as aromantic asexual and is frequently conscious of how she uses language to navigate through both academic and non-academic spaces. At EMU, she researched the discussion around asexual inclusion in queer spaces online. Though she is not currently looking at asexuality specifically, she looks at queerness and language in her current research. Most recently, she examined the way language was used to construct Titus Andromedon's identity as a Black gay man in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. In her future research, she plans to look at how queer people of color use language to construct their own identities in various spaces.

All dinners are hosted 5:30 to 7pm at 1443 Washtenaw. Reserve your spot at this dinner or any of the upcoming dinners at: http://bit.ly/QTIPOCfall2019
