Full event details

In this session students will be encouraged to engage critically with the concept of sexuality. We will consider how behaviours and actions that are now commonly associated with LGBT identities have been considered through history and with an international perspective. This session introduces students to the long history of official criminalisation and policing of gender and sexuality alongside informal social controls that seek to maintain established gendered hierarchies. The intrinsic relationship between sexuality and gender will be considered and examples are drawn upon to illustrate how spaces for gender and sexual minorities are policed and legitimate LGBT status is reserved for particular people.
