CfP: Queer Studies: Looking Back, Looking Forward (06/2017, Guildford/UK); DL: 28.04.2017

A BSA Early Career Forum Regional Event; Kirsty Lohman, Katherine Hubbard and Andrew King (Web)

Time: 30 June 2017
Venue: University of Surrey, Guildford, UK
Proposals due: 28 April 2017

Contemporary queer studies increasingly focus on broad areas of sociological concern. It is therefore common to find early career researchers working on issues relating to sexuality across the humanities and social sciences. This interdisciplinarity leads to exciting new areas of research. However, early career researchers can often find it difficult to connect with other researchers.

This one-day workshop event will provide a forum for discussing the past, present and future of queer research, with an emphasis on the challenges and opportunities faced by early career researchers. This broad theme will allow for discussions to take in theoretical issues, methodological problems and structural challenges that face the early career researcher working in areas of queer and sexuality studies.

Keynote speakers:

  • Zowie Davy, De Montfort University
  • Yiu-Tung Suen, Chinese University of Hong Kong
