Join the Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender (CTSG), University of Brighton, for a free lecture from Dr GerShun Avilez on Thursday, April 22 from 5pm.
In this talk, Avilez will explore how medical attention can define and control queer bodies – even in attempts to be helpful. Avilez shows how artists undermine such efforts to control these bodies and the public’s knowledge about them by using shielding narrative strategies to imagine a space of freedom. He offers an analysis of literature through engagements with medical humanities alongside queer and trans theory to present a conception of radical Black Queer identity.
This event will consist of a 40-minute presentation by Dr Avilez, followed by a Q&A moderated by Dr Stephanie Davis, University of Brighton. The lecture will be recorded and uploaded to the CTSG website, whilst the Q&A will not.
This event is FREE, though donations to CTSG’s postgraduate scholarship for trans and non-binary students are welcome. To book, CLICK HERE.
