Cross-disciplinary conversations on sexualities, queerness and space

This half-day symposium will bring together postgraduates working in range of disciplines and fields to explore research centring sexualities, queerness and space. The scope of this event is deliberately wide so as to facilitate engagements with sexualities and queer research from a range of disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspectives.

The event seeks to create a supportive and productive environment for presenting research, and engaging with work by fellow postgraduates working on issues and topics relating to sexualities, queerness and space.

A programme for the day will be available soon. Contexts and themes may include (but are not limited to):

- Theoretical approaches e.g. queer theory, trans studies, feminism, intersectionality, decolonial or post colonial theory, assemblages, phenomenology

- Methodological approaches, questions and quandaries

- Negotiating public, pseudo-public and private spaces

- Health and/or public heath

- Social justice, (in)equalities and/or citizenship

- Legislation and policy

- Migration and borders

- Kinship, relationships, monogamy/polyamory

- Embodiment, emotion and/or affect

- Art and performance

- Activism and protest

- LGBTQ+ identities and communities

The symposium is organised by the Space, Sexualities and Queer Research Group at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), and supported by the UCL Urban Laboratory and the Octagon Small Grants Fund at UCL's Institute for Advanced Studies.
