Event: Critsex up north: sexuality and age (june)

Date: 22 June 2012, 1.15 pm – 6.15 pm
Venue: University of Huddersfield,

Critical Sexology is a successful seminar series which has been running in London for nearly a decade. It is an interdisciplinary seminar series for psychologists, psychoanalysts, medical doctors, literary and cultural studies scholars, philosophers, artists, lawyers and historians with a critical interest in the construction and management of gender and sexuality in the medical, human sciences, discursive and cultural spheres.

Established in 2002 by Iain Morland and Lih-Mei Liao, Critical Sexology has since held three seminars per year, with meetings taking place in London. The seminar is currently co-organised by Lisa Downing (University of Exeter), Meg Barker (Open University), and Robert Gillett (Queen Mary, University of London). Since 2011, one in three of our yearly sessions now takes place in a University in the north of England.

The next seminar, guest-organised by Dr Sharon Wray and Dr Tracey Yeadon-Lee, takes place in Seminar Room 4 – Ground Floor of the Harold Wilson Building (HWG/04) on Queensgate Campus from
