Date
2 May 2019, 10.00am - 3 May 2019, 5.00pm
Type
Conference / Symposium
Venue
University of Cambridge
Description

This conference explores the potential of the arts to represent, explore, challenge and create modes of queer lived, felt and embodied experience. Taking ‘feeling’ in all its meanings – touch, hapticity, sensation, emotion, a hunch or gut reaction, as well as tentativeness when ‘feeling one’s way’ – the conference will explore the complex relationships to culture and society that are at stake in queer artworks and queer experience.

Keynote lecture by Sara Ahmed

Convenors: Geoffrey Maguire (Cambridge), Fraser Riddell (Oxford) and Tom Smith (St Andrews)
