Queer Studies: Looking Back, Looking Forward

Queer Studies: Looking Back, Looking Forward

Friday 30th June 2017, University of Surrey, Guildford

BSA Early Career Forum Regional Event

 

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.

 

We are delighted to announce our keynote speakers:

Dr Zowie Davy, De Montfort University

Dr Yiu-Tung Suen, Chinese University of Hong Kong
