CFP: "Same-Sexuality and Intimacy across the British Empire, 1780s-1850s" Panel for Queer History Conference (San Francisco, 16-19 June 2019)

I am hoping to put together a 3-4 person session for the 2019 Queer History Conference (San Francisco State University, June 16-19) that interrogates the history of same-sexuality and intimacy across the British Empire from the 1780s to the 1850s.

Re: H-SHGAPE Quesiton of the Week: Queering the GAPE

Useful books to explore these themes in the GAPE's leading Southern city are Alecia Long's The Great Southern Babylon: Sex, Race, and Respectability in New Orleans, 1865-1927 and Emily Epstein Landau's Spectacular Wickedness: Sex, Race, and Memory in Storyville, New Orleans.
