About the organiser:
The Institute was founded as The Committee on Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Studies at the University of Arizona in 1993. Its formation was inspired by feminist science scholar Donna Haraway’s visit as a Rockefeller Humanities Resident Scholar, and from the beginning, it has been dedicated to interdisciplinary intellectual community development. The Committee was formally re-established as the UA Institute for LGBT Studies on Oct 11, 2007.
