I'm writing to invite those interested to join sessions of the Queen's History of Sexuality Reading Group, which is based in Queen's University's Department of History. Each meeting features guest authors of exciting recent monographs in the field who provide an introduction to their book, followed by Q&A.
Participants are expected to read the monographs or selected chapters ahead of time, to make the most of the sessions. This reading group will be of particular interest to students and faculty researching the history of sexuality, gender studies, legal and moral regulation, and colonial studies. Sign up through the Eventbrite link below.
Do join us for other sessions featuring:
