A one-day conference exploring intersections and fault-lines around work, activism and sexuality.

Friday 15th March, 2019. Universtiy College London.

The workplace has always been a central arena for the creation and contestation of sexual minority identities and rights. This conference brings together studies of capitalism, labour, and sexuality, each of them important fields in the scholarship of the modern world, and explores the intersections between them. The one-day event will examine how lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people have encountered discrimination, fought for workplace rights and imagined liberation within and beyond the confines of capitalism. Linked to the conference, Margot Canaday will be giving the qUCL annual lecture on Thursday 14 March exploring work and sexuality in the United States.

The organisers of this one-day conference invite paper proposals on scholarship of sexuality and work, broadly defined. Although mainly situated around the history of sexuality and work in the United States and United Kingdom, we welcome papers that examine this intersection more widely – in any space or time and across academic disciplines.

Papers/panels themes may include:
    ⁃    Queer Work/Queer Labour/Queer Capitalism
    ⁃    Intersections of race and gender with class and sexuality
    ⁃    Discourses of liberation and equality
    ⁃    Trade unionism/labour organisation
    ⁃    Workplace discrimination
    ⁃    Workplace organisation
    ⁃    Sex work
    ⁃    Emotional Labour
    ⁃    Cultural representations of queer work/labour/capitalism and activism
