Sexuality Summer School: Love and its Others

The Sexuality Summer School is an annual programme of events that this year explores the theme of Love and its Others. Bringing together postgraduates, researchers and international scholars with artists and filmmakers, the school opens up dialogue and discussions exploring contemporary debates in queer and feminist sexuality studies, with a particular emphasis on the interdisciplinary study of culture. Speakers this year include feminist film scholar Professor Patricia White, who will discuss Todd Haynes’ Carol in history and theory, and Toronto Filmmaker Richard Fung.

Organised by the Centre for the Study of Sexuality and Culture (CSSC) at the University of Manchester since 2008, and funded by the University of Manchester Faculty of Humanities and Screen, partnered by HOME, Contact and Manchester Pride.
