Our next session, in collaboration with the Centre for the History of Medicine, will be entitled ‘Power Flip: Examining the Personal Archive of a Bisexual Homosexual Aversion Therapist’. The session will be led by Kate Davison, PhD student at the University of Melbourne. Kate’s work focuses on the history of sexology in the Cold War period.
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.
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.
