Co-organized by Jessa Lingel, Jack Gieseking, the UPenn Alice Paul Center, and Anne Esacove, #QIS2 is the second Queer Internet Studies Symposium, a space to share research, make art, organize activisms, and develop an interdisciplinary conversation of what Queer Internet Studies might look like and mean for research, policy, and activist agendas.
We are grateful to our speakers, panelists, and attendees for what was truly an exciting and important conversation on what Queer Internet Studies is and might be. We are especially grateful to our sponsors who provided with a space, food, tech, and resources to make today’s event possible: UPenn’s Alice Paul Center for Research on Gender, Sexuality and Women, UPenn Annenberg’s School for Communication, School of Social Policy and Practice, Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication, Price Lab, LGBT Center, Women’s Center and Departments of English and History of Art, and the American Studies Program at Trinity College.
