Campus Events and More


Black Queer Utopia Fest

Date: Saturday, October 21st
Time: 6:00-9:00pm
Location: Parkes Social Hall

Black Queer Utopia Fest aims to promote social justice education and inclusivity on Northwestern’s Evanston campus by bringing together a variety of visions and methods of artistic expression to portray the diverse perspectives of the black queer community. To do this, a variety of Chicago activists and artists will be hosted for an arts festival centered on depicting a utopia for black queer folks. The festival is free and open to all Northwestern students and the Evanston/Chicago community. Please contact Nic with any questions.

Combahee Now

Date: Thursday, October 26th
Time: 5:15pm
Location: Krause Studio in Annie May Swift Hall

The Colloquium on Ethnicity and Diaspora (CED) this year focuses on the multiple modes of being entangled. Through a reflection on the Combahee River Collective Statement, the program aims to complicate the lines often drawn between violences and pleasure, resistance and passivity, bodies and technology, as well as embodied experience and structural position–highlighting these binaries as not always discreet, but rather as entangled. For more information, please contact CED.

Library Committee: Call for Applications

Are you interested in getting involved with your Northwestern community? Would you like a peek into part of the inner workings of The Graduate School? Consider applying to be on the library committee!

The committee, which meets once per quarter, serves in an advisory capacity to Sarah Pritchard, the Dean of Libraries. The committee includes faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates. There are currently two graduate students serving on this committee and the library staff are seeking a third student with a particular interest in the Science and Math libraries. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please e-mail GLAC with a short statement (no more than 300 words) describing your interest in this role. If there is more than one application, elections will be held for the role.
