Queer and Now Reading Group

To mark the year of the fiftieth anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act, Queer & Now is a reading group dedicated to queer theory and LGBTQ writing and culture. Queer & Now brings together academic staff and graduate students at the University of Birmingham in order to discuss recent publications pertinent to the fields of queer studies and beyond.

Our first meeting took place in February 2017 in celebration of LGBT History Month in anticipation of a talk by Professor Heather Love at the Centre for Contemporary Literature & Culture. The group will meet twice each semester for the duration of 2017. 

Queer & Now is convened by Dr. Angus Connell Brown. Please email him for details of future meetings.

New events will be announced here shortly.

For more information please contact the Centre Directors: Nathan Cardon or Rona Cran.
