I’ll be appearing at Western Washington University (Bellingham, WA) on Thursday, 17 February as a panelist at a round table event discussing Glee. Other panelists will be handling masculinity, sexuality, and gender on the show, and I’m covering disability!
The ‘Feminist Response to Pop Culture: Glee‘ event runs from 7-9 PM; after our presentations there will be an opportunity for Q&A. The venue has been described to me as accessible; if you are attending and have specific accessibility concerns or needs, please contact me.
