About the session
In this session, we will reflect on LGBTQ History Month by watching a movie, eat some pizza, and discuss the histories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the UK. Students will watch Pride and then have the opportunity to discuss wider questions about the topics covered in the film with Dr Chris Mowatt, an expert in queer history, and Dr Mirela Ivanova, a lecturer at the University of Sheffield. The session aims to provide a sense of the diverse topics studied at university, and the ways in which these can speak to wider societal projects like LGBTQ History Month.
The deadline for registrations is Thursday 8 June 2023. For more information, contact Tom Jones on firstname.lastname@example.org.
