The First Hebrew Gay Detective: Sexuality, Identity Politics and the Enigma of the Self in the Detective Novel

Jan 22nd, 17:15 (Common Room, FAMES)

Contemplating critical reactions to his detective novel series led by the gay private investigator, Oded Heffer, Israeli author and literary scholar, Yonatan Sagiv, explores the pivotal role that sexuality, social identity, and the construction of the self play in the detective genre.

Focusing on the Anglo-American tradition of the genre as well as its Israeli variation, Sagiv's lecture will examine the multiple aspects of the question of identity as central to the understanding of the figure of the detective.

We Have Rather Been Invaded: screening and discussion with the video-maker
Lecture Room 2, Department of History of Art, 1-2 Scroope Terrace, Trumpington Street

Please join us for a morning screening of Ed Webb-Ingall's new video We Have Rather Been Invaded (2018) in the Department of History of Art, which takes the anniversary of Section 28 and LGBTQ activism as its subject.We Have Rather Been Invaded, 2017/2018, draws on community video methodologies from the 1970s and 1980s. It looks at the impact and legacy of Section 28 and the direct action protests that preceded it, including the ‘lesbian invasion’ of the BBC six o’clock news in 1988. Comprised of a roundtable discussion with activists and educators interspersed with archival materials, the video examines the role of activism and our understanding of this piece of legislation that prohibited local authorities and state schools in the UK from promoting homosexuality. All are very welcome to attend. There will be a short Q&A to follow.

Festival of Ideas: TRANSPOSITIONS
Murray Edwards College

Responding to the Reproductivities exhibition, performance artist Sophie Seita’s commissioned piece Transpositions will reflect on the concept and choreography of transposition, queer kinship, corn as a queer plant, ritual, the ritornello, and the cross-pollinating possibilities of flowery metaphors and of planting queer objects. The performance will include spoken text, choreographed movement, interaction with objects, as well as recorded and live sound.

Sophie Seita is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and researcher. Her text- and research-based practice spans poetry, performance, lecture-performance, video, translation, and multimedia collaborations. Her work has recently been presented at Art Night 2018 (Oxo Tower, London), SAAS-Fee Summer Institute of Art, the Royal Academy, Bold Tendencies, the Arnolfini, La MaMa Galleria, Cité Internationale des Arts, Parasol Unit, Company Gallery, and elsewhere. She’s the author of the poetry and performance books Meat (Little Red Leaves, 2015), Fantasias in Counting (BlazeVOX, 2014), and 12 Steps (Wide Range, 2012); the translator of Uljana Wolf’s Subsisters: Selected Poems (Belladonna*, 2017); and the editor of a centenary reprint of The Blind Man (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2017), named one of the Best Art Books of 2017 by The New York Times. She is also currently a Research Fellow at Queens’ College Cambridge, where she recently finished her monograph Provisional Avant-Gardes: Little Magazine Communities from Dada to Digital, forthcoming from Stanford University Press in 2019.

Following our Annual Lecture with Professor Charis Thompson we are hosting a launch event for the Special Issue of Reproductive BioMedicine & Society: ‘Making Families: Transnational Surrogacy, Queer Kinship and Reproductive Justice’
The Pitt Building

Guest editors: Marcin Smietana and Charis Thompson

Authors in the issue: Charis Thompson, Marcin Smietana, France Winddance Twine, Judith Stacey, Joshua Gamson, Laura Mamo, Camisha Russell, Jenny Gunnarsson Payne, Zakiya Luna, Carolyn Sufrin, Michal Nahman, Sharmila Rudrappa, Ingvill Stuvøy, Heather Jacobson, Damien Riggs, Jérôme Courduriès

Also in the issue: Sayani Mitra, Zsuzsa Berend, Siobhan Magee, Linda Layne

A day-long conference, Making Families, was held at UC Berkeley in 2016. Our aim in convening the conference was to draw out and then begin to address tensions and possible solidarities among three powerful frames for thinking about contemporary reproduction, namely queer reproductions, stratified reproduction and reproductive justice, that are rarely read together. A special issue of Reproductive BioMedicine and Society, derived from the conference, is forthcoming: available in open access at www.rbmsociety.com, vol. 7, November 2018.

William Harvey Lecture Theatre, Clinical School Building

This talk will give an overview of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) physical and mental health as a public concern, providing a picture of how LGBT health disparities exist within the UK drawing on population-level data. The audience will hear about the unique health needs of LGBT people including health among young people and the trans community, inequalities in mental health and increased health risk behaviours. The talk will offer some considerations of underlying mechanisms for the observed inequities and provide recommendations for addressing the LGBT health gap within UK medicine.
