Congratulations to Our Consultant Alex Bandong

Join us in congratulating our 2020-2021 GWS Frances Holland Black Scholarship recipient.

Alex Bandong (they/them) is a sophomore double majoring in Gender and Women's Studies and Psychology. Alex describes what they intend to do with the scholarship: "The work I intend to do with this scholarship is with the Lavender Languages Institute (LLI), a ten day summer workshop with online courses and discussion sessions. At LLI, I will be developing a research project specifically on the topic of queer language and its political frames. I will be answering these questions: What makes language queer? How does queer language disturb hegemonic language codes within a political structure? What kind of theories/activisms can we design from queer languages that will make more political freedom possible? Lastly, by attending this workshop and creating this research project, I will ultimately be helping myself develop my future capstone project for GWS with a focus on language and identity."
