Vorige week organiseerde The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, van de Universiteit van Edinburgh een conferentie: Queer Representation: Pasts, Presents, Futures
Tijdens deze vierdaagse online conferentie verzorgde IHLIA-medewerker Connie van Gils een posterpresentatie Men with moustaches: gay guys depicting their dream guy in the eighties – or what a visual presentation of the history of gay nightlife in the Netherlands can teach us
Over de conferentie
This conference examines how LGBTQ representation has changed through time, continues to evolve in the present, and what role it might play in the future. It draws on recent developments in queer representation in order to trace how LGBTQ media comments on both the current state of queer rights, as well as the possibility of queer futurity.
The conference seeks to represent a multiplicity of queer experiences, spanning divergent historical and geographical areas of representation, as well as the plurality of ideas of what it means to identify as queer today, and what this identification might look like in the future.
