FUTURESEX 2018: University of Surrey, 27th-28th June

We seek to interrogate the shifting norms of sex, gender and sexuality, while questioning how research methodologies can properly attend to these shifts. The conference’s focus straddles historical, contemporary and future imaginations, and thus encourages interdisciplinary contributions. The conference will be an inclusive and welcoming event for those interested in sex, gender and sexuality. We welcome submissions from early career academics, students and academic-activists as well as those established in academic careers.

We are delighted to welcome 2 exciting keynote speakers: Dr Kate Lister (Leeds Trinity University) and Prof Katherine Johnson (Brighton University).

We invite proposals relating to any aspect of sex, gender and/or sexuality in the past/present and/or future, topics may include but are not limited to:
