Minutes - Meeting 12/9/11

  • Last meeting of the semester! :(
  • Will be sending out an email next semester to see which day works best for everyone to meet on
  • Discussion: Rick Perry campaign ad
    • Can already pray in schools, just can't force others to pray
    • In France, can't wear hijabs in schools
  • August's idea for workshop at Western Regional Conference (or other conferences)
    • Discussion about science and queer identity and how to bridge the gap
    • Generally, literature assumes heteronormativity and there's discrimination
    • Also, lots of queer activists mistrust/don't understand science. Scientists are seen as apolitical
    • Since we're in this scientists interested in activism minority, we should represent them.'
    • We can try to get National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals (NOGLSTP) involved - resources, etc.
      • Could also bring them here to speak!
  • No meeting next week! :( Have a good break!
