Queer London Research Forum Launch Event

Queer London Research Forum Launch Event

Friday 29 November 2013 @ 6.30pm

Old Cinema, University of Westminster

Following the success of the Queer London conference in March 2013, Katherine M. Graham and Simon Avery are pleased to announce the launch of the Queer London Research Forum at the University of Westminster.

This Forum is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions about versions of Queer London c.1850-present. A series of seminars will be held in 2013-14 and we are in the process of developing a web forum to continue debate and dialogue further.

The launch event for QLRF will take place on Friday 29 November at 6.30pm in the Old Cinema, University of Westminster (Regent Street Campus). We are pleased to welcome the artist Christa Holka ( and Sam McBean (Gender Institute, LSE) who will be discussing the intersections between queerness, the digital archive and London, which they both interrogate in their work. Katherine and Simon will open the event with some remarks about the development and future of the Forum overall.

The event will be followed by a wine reception.
