There will be over 30 academic papers, workshops, film screenings and performances over the workshop day. We have also scheduled a queer film-screening of The Owls on the evening of the 16th of May, with producer Alex Juhasz present for a Q&A session.

The provisional programme will be coming out in the next few weeks.

The workshop is linked to the second annual conference of the International Feminist Journal of Politics, (Im)possibly Queer International Feminisms, between May 17-19, 2013. The Workshop is organised by the Sussex Centre for Cultural Studies, University of Sussex and partly supported by the EPSRC/CC+ Network Sustaining networked knowledge: expertise, feminist media production, art and activism.

We look forward to welcoming you to Brighton in May!
