Lesbian-Gay-Queer Research Initiative (LGQRI) fosters intellectual conversation and interdisciplinary connection among faculty, graduate students, and staff engaged in research and scholarship on the social, cultural, and material production of sexuality. Since its founding in 2001 LGQRI has sought to connect abundant sexuality-studies resources on the Michigan campus and to establish a locus around which contacts and dialogue about LGBTQ research and scholarship can coalesce. Recognizing that resources in the field of LGBTQ studies often develop in separate disciplinary domains, LGQRI aims to foster interdisciplinary scholarship and conversation and to facilitate the consolidation and dissemination of information and the development of new collaborative ventures.
LGQRI sponsors a vibrant ongoing speaker and artist series.
