Take a look at upcoming events we are running.
We run a monthly seminar during term time, which is usually held online and is open to all. To register, please contact Constance Bantman (email@example.com).
Discussion of two articles on border abolitionism and queer mobilities.
Joint seminar with our international partner, the Mobilities and Humanities Centre at the University of Padua.
Guest lecture by Chiara Rabbiosi on video-making as a mobilities research pedagogy and discussion.
If you would like your own work to be discussed, please get in touch! In the past we have discussed grant applications, article drafts, thesis chapters, and even an exhibition project. This always proves very beneficial and interesting for all involved.
Introductions. Time to hear about everyone's current and ongoing projects, publications etc.
We will read the attached text, exploring urban mobilities, which we have not discussed for some time: 'The Second City in Literary Urban Studies: Methods, Approaches, Key Thematics'
Queer Second Cities – Challenges, Perspectives, Possibilities. At this digital, free roundtable event, we want to discuss with you and a small group of experts what a queer second city might be. Is it an urban LGBTQIA2S+ space that is not located in a capital city? Could it be any queer space on the periphery on metropolitan locations? Is there a connection between the notion of second cities and Beauvoir's second sex? Please join us to explore the challenges, perspectives and possibilities queerness outside of first cities represents.
Please send us any material you would like to discuss with the group; we will also work on the collaborative article which we started last year on subjectivity in research. If you have contributed a piece, please do try to attend! If you can't please get in touch and we will explore alternative slots.
Joint session with our partners from the University of Padua's Mobility & Humanities Centre for Advanced Studies. We have just signed a Memorandum of Understanding with this very established group and will be exploring our shared interests and future projects.
