Voices lost and found: 50 years since decriminalisation

23 November, 2017, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Identity politics is arguably the defining cultural discourse of our time. It is an essential part of conceptualising what it means to be human. This year marks 50 years since homosexuality was decriminalised in the UK.

Join us for a lively panel discussion at our central London venue, with speakers from our community of authors and series editors. This varied debate will look at the evolution of gay, lesbian and queer studies in the humanities, delve into what it has meant to be a ‘lost’, marginalised and even criminalised voice, and examine to what degree historically marginalised voices have been ‘found’ since this momentous Act of Parliament was passed.

Audience questions will be invited at the end with a drinks reception to follow.

The venue is on Trematon Walk, which can be found between Railway Street and Wharfdale Road.
