6th Annual BSSN Conference Global Crisis: Local Identities and Sexuality

Thursday 13th September at the University of Sussex
Falmer, Brighton


This is an interdisciplinary conference aimed at activists, academics, scholars, member of the LGBT community and community groups, students, documentary and film-makers, writers and artists.

The conference explores the role that local identities and sexualities have played and continue to play in the global economic crisis.  A range of panels will engage with questions such as: In what ways can they be seen to challenge, resist, critique or creatively engage with this? What role have sexualities and identities had in resistance to and reflections on the global crisis? What impact has the message of global capitalism in crisis had on the expression of sexual dissidence and social dissent?
