UNC Asheville will host the 10th renewal of its biennial Queer Studies Conference, drawing an international group of scholars of gender and sexuality to campus, April 5-7. The 2018 conference theme is Prisons, Borders and Pipelines – Toward a Queer Abolitionist Movement, with participants presenting on a range of topics that explore the connections between glbtqia+ communities and broader social issues of prison abolition, neocolonialism, state control and human rights.

The UNC Asheville Queer Studies Conference began in 1989, and is led by a group of faculty, staff and students. It is dedicated to community-building and welcomes undergraduate scholars, interested non-academics and community members, as well as professionals in the queer studies discipline.
