Next week, in collaboration with the Student Union and the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL), Queer History Warwick presents ‘Reading Images: Queer Re/presentation and Identity’. This event will be run by Hannah Ayres, a second year PhD candidate who specialises in queer re/presentation in museums.
Tomorrow brings us our final event of what has been a very busy and very successful term. In a way, we are returning to the group’s origins as we host a reading group based on Gayatri Gopinath’s book Impossible Desires: Queer Diasporas and South Asian Public Culture.
On Monday 21st October, we are holding a joint book launch with our friends at Queer Asia for Queer Asia: Decolonising and Reimagining Sexuality and Gender. On Friday 25th October, we are holding a joint session with the University of Warwick’s Centre for the Study of Women and Gender (CSWG) entitled ‘When feminism wins: gaining the right to abortion in Ireland’.
Next Tuesday (15th October), we will host our first event of the year. Steven Dryden, Broadcasts Recording Curator at the British Library, is coming to run a two-part session called ‘Queering the British Library’. This event is being run in conjunction with Warwick Oral History Network and The Library.
