26th – 27th April 2012
Supported by the Wellcome Trust, at the Centre for Medical History, University of Exeter
This interdisciplinary conference seeks to investigate how statuary intersects with questions of sexuality, and temporality, specifically history. It explores the numerous different ways in which statues – as historical and/or imagined artefacts – allow us to think about the past and its relation to sex, gender and sexuality.
The conference brings together contributors from a variety of disciplines, including history, gender and sexuality studies, literary and cultural studies, art history, classics, archaeology and philosophy.
Dr Stefano-Maria Evangelista (University of Oxford)
