Dante’s Queer Fathers

Online Lecture, 7 Jun 2021, 19:00

In 700 years of intense commentary, readers of the Comedy—at least professional readers—have almost entirely managed to avoid a crucial inquiry: what did Dante know about classical pederasty? What did he think of it? And most poignantly, did he think about Virgil in this context?

Organized by Manuele Gragnolati

A lecture on the occasion of the publication of The Oxford Handbook of Dante in cooperation with Équipe littérature et culture italiennes (Sorbonne Université)

Part of the Lecture Series Decentring Dante.

Video-meeting with the possibility of audiovisual participation. Please register on the event page. Public livestream available.

What Happened to
Lesbian and Gay Studies?


Online Symposium, 17-18 Jun 2021

Organized by Ben Nichols

Video-meeting with the possibility of audiovisual participation. Please register on the event page. Public livestream available.

From Hoe to Heaux
: Illicit Eroticism and the Black Erotic Imagination

Online Lecture, 23 Jun 2021, 19:30

The talk considers the politics of Black women engaging in forms of hustling, hypersexuality, and sex work. Centring the question of how Black women interrogate and rework damaging archetypes like the ‘Hoe’, this talk theorizes from below, focusing on multiply marginalized Black cis and femme women involved in stigmatized and criminalized forms of erotic engagement, relation, and survival.
