Call for Academic and Creative Proposals


Queer MiniCon will be an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate and professional students, faculty, postdocs, and staff from all North Carolina institutions of higher education to share research and creative work affirming the experiences of LGBTQIA+ communities and individuals.

We’re looking for 5 to 10-minute proposals for everything from polished academic presentations to early research explorations, to the results of obscure deep-dives and personal expression. We encourage submissions of existing works and early explorations of new work; including that which has previously been presented or exhibited elsewhere.

Considering mini-proposals in the following categories:

  • Academic Paper/Presentation
  • Lived Experience Presentations
  • Creative Performance or Recording
  • Visual Artwork (Static Images)
  • Written Poem or Short Story
  • Category-defying works

Visit go.unc.edu/QMC2020 for submission notes, frequently asked questions, and accessibility details.
