It's time for the last live-tweet of the day! I'm at the @WCMSU staff meeting, where we have guest panelists here to talk with us about #queer #appalachia, and the Englishes and stories our students bring to us from rural areas. Leggggo! #WCMSU
@WCMSU First up: @michiganstateu's own Hillary Glasby. She's opening by sharing her history and background; though she's not *from* #Appalachia, she lived in Appalachia for some time. Glasby's talking about the ways in which q#ueerness can be made invisible in Appalachia.
@WCMSU @michiganstateu Her interest in this project: part wanting to make visible the queerness that exists in rural and Appalachian spaces. The prevalent idea is still "If you're queer and in Appalachia you have to leave," but not everyone leaves. How can we honor the stories of who's still there?

Next up: Learn at Lunch w/ Dr. @ClarkPerryman & @michiganstateu's Paulette Granberry Russel, Senior Advisor to the President for Diversity & Director of the Office for Inclusion & Intercultural Initiatives.

We're gonna talk #intersectionality, #diversity, #highered.

Away we go!
@ClarkPerryman @michiganstateu @tgsmith12 is moderating. I'll try to keep up with questions and commentary while respecting the sensitivity of these topics and the intimacy of the space.
@ClarkPerryman @michiganstateu @tgsmith12 Dr. PC is talking about her career path so far: tenure track jobs, WPA work, higher level administration. Really interesting thinking-through of how we move laterally or climb within institutions and what types of experiences/skills give us the muscle to do so. #wcmsu
