Queering the Map? Activism and the Archive inside and outside the Academy

Monday, May 21, 2018 -
12:45pm to 2:00pm
Radcliffe Humanities, Oxford OX2 6GG
TORCH Seminar Room

This is the second in a series of lunchtime workshops to think about teaching/research through  different (and intersectional) lenses, with the goal also of capturing interdisciplinary and intergenerational perspectives.

This time we want to explore ways in which research deploys a queer lens to transform, disrupt and challenge fields of scholarship, and how that productive dislodging of perspective informs teaching (and could do so more profoundly), at both an individual and a more systemic level.   Our specific focus is on the interface between research/teaching (in art, ancient world philology and musicology) and activism/performance - both within and outside 'the academy'.  This workshop is timed to fall within a few days of the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Bi-Phobia.

The panellists are Oreet Ashery (Ruskin School of Art), Jacob Mallinson Bird (Music) and Richard Parkinson (Oriental Studies).

This workshop will be chaired by Jane Garnett (Tutor in Modern History, Faculty of History). 
Lunch will be available from 12.30pm. Attendance is free but booking is essential. Click here to reserve your place.
