Building on 2016

The 2016 conference focused on a range of topics and their relationship to the study of past attitudes towards sex and gender diversity.  It included:
  • Archival research and the uncovering of source materials in LGBTQI History
  • The influence of other disciplines on LGBTQI historical study
  • Experiences of conducting LGBTQI research within the academy
  • Reclaiming forgotten LGBTQI histories
  • Writing and researching under/unexplored regions in LGBTQI history
  • The relationship between historical study and LGBTI political activism
  • Considering the impact of our work as LGBTQI historians
  • The problems of ‘LGBTQI’ nomenclature when seeking accurate readings of the past
We want to continue to build on debate as we work towards the conference in 2017. If you would like to share your current reflections on this blog please get in touch on
