This is an online event.
‘Antic-Queer-Tea’ will explore how Greco-Roman antiquity has influenced new worlds of LGBTQI+ identities. Sappho, Ganymede, Artemis, Tiresias, Spartans, Greek symposia or Roman emperors have populated our imaginations, providing models and perspectives for thinkers and writers such as Winckelmann, Foucault, Wilde or E.M. Forster, films such as Call Me by Your Name, and many theatre-performances. Three scholars working in the University of Reading’s Classics Department and its Ure Museum – Oliver Baldwin, Katherine Harloe and Claudina Romero Mayorga – will share a dynamic conversation about their research and the broader topic with the LGBTQI+ community in Reading and online, and anyone interested in our café. Images, clips and excerpts from texts will be shared to illustrate the conversation which will be opened to participation from the audience. Tea, coffee, conversation, art and transgression will most surely invoke the spirit of Dionysus, god of intoxication and gender liminalities. Join in with your most Bacchic fervour!
