In this small crash course, you will learn about relevant and interesting LGBT+ topics that might lie outside of your regular curriculum. For this month, we will touch upon the fields of Linguistics and Politics
In the first part of our lecture, professor Eduardo Vieirawill talk about the role of LGBTQ+ topics in his own field of study, which includeslinguistic policy study and sociolinguistics in Latin-America. He will showthis by using a case study of a specific group of marginalized transgenderpeople in Brazil. The second part of our lecture will be provided by professorMartijn Mos, whose focus is on LGBTQ+ rights in International Relations,specifically focused on the European Union. For this lecture, he will talkabout the disadvantaged position of many LGBTQ+ individuals and Central andEastern Europe.
