Panel Discussion: Collecting LGBTQ+

 

We look forward to welcoming you to our next event which will be held on the 25th March, 6-8pm where we will be hosting a panel discussion on ‘Collecting LGBTQ+’.

Speakers

Dickon Edwards: Dickon Edwards is a PhD researcher at Birkbeck, University of London. His topic is English literature, specifically Ronald Firbank and the legacy of camp modernism. In 2019 he was awarded a scholarship from the British government to research this subject full-time.

Chris Adams: Christopher Adams is a British-American playwright living and working in London, UK. In his academic life, Christopher is a bibliographer and textual editor. He is a co-editor of The Collected Works of John Ford: Volumes II & III . He teaches on the ‘Introduction to the Principles of Descriptive Bibliography’ course at Rare Book School (University of Virginia)

…And one more *incredible speaker* still to be announced!

Each speaker will talk for approx. 10 minutes or so and then there will be time for a Q&A. This will be followed, as always, by a small drinks reception where you’ll be able to talk to the speakers in a more informal setting.

As usual, please register via eventbrite here.

It is especially important to book this event in advance, as we will be monitoring announcements and advice for the Coronavirus, and may need to contact attendees if the university decides to close campus.
