Dear Colleagues

I would like to invite you to the launch of my first scholarly book “The Correspondence of Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, 1846-1894”


This book is a critical edition of several hundred letters to and from the lawyer and sexual reformer, Karl Heinrich Ulrichs (translated by Michael Lombardi-Nash). Covid-19 means a physical launch is not possible but on ZOOM we can make the event global.

The event will be chaired by Dr Tim Jones (Department of Archaeology and History, La Trobe University) and will include the following speakers:
Dr Sean Brady (
Department of History, Classics and Archaeology Birkbeck, University of London) will open with the main address.
Dr Douglas Pretsell (Department of Archaeology and History, La Trobe University) will then introduce three readings from Ulrichs' letters, read by the actor David Chandler.
Dr Michael Lombardi-Nash, the translator of the letters in this book and also of Ulrichs' twelve books on 'Man-manly love' will then talk about translating Ulrichs.
Finally, Dr Douglas Pretsell will close with brief remarks on the writing of the book. 

I would be delighted if you could join us, details below:
