Who and Why: The Somewhere Over the Rainbow (SOTR) conference is a day of professional development primarily addressing the needs of international education administrators to understand sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) diversity, and to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and beyond (LGBTQ+) inclusion in the field of international education. The primary audience are administrators in education abroad, international exchange, and international student and scholar services, particularly those working in higher education. The conference welcomes all those with an interest in SOGI diversity and LGBTQ+ inclusion, especially higher education LGBTQ center professionals, international exchange administrators in government and NGOs, and students and scholars studying international education. This year we wish to expand the SOTR community even further by encouraging the participation of researchers, theorists, activists, and organizers whose work relates to our principal themes around international education and LGBTQ+ inclusion.

 

Where and When: Saturday, June 1, 2019 -- Hosted at the University of Maryland, College Park, located inside the Capital Beltway and accessible on the Washington, D.C. metro system via the Green line, as well as by the MARC commuter rail (Camden Line).
