LGBT History Month - Glyn Salton-Cox, 'Queer Communism'

Date: 9th Feb 2019

Event time: 14:00 to 16:00

Glyn states: ‘It is well known that many of the best-known queer writers of the 1930s were involved with Communist politics. Why, then, has there been no extended examination of this striking juncture of dissident sex and socialism?’ His talk to us explores this question, among others, aiming to transform current narratives of 20th century literary, cultural, and intellectual history from a queer Marxist perspective. It will also explore the contemporary problem of populism, arguing we can learn important lessons from the queer radicalism of the 1930s that can help formulate strategies of resistance to today’s multi-layered oppressions in both Britain and the US.

Glyn Salton-CoxGlyn Salton-Cox is Assistant Professor of English and Affiliate of Feminist Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Admission free; light refreshments available; all welcome.
