GES 2012: 'The fluidity and contestability of gender and sexuality'

The aim of this symposium is to contribute to the academically informed discussion on gender within Anglophone and Celtic linguistics and literature as well as culture studies. To explore gender issues from a variety of perspectives, we plan to organize plenary lectures and themed sessions on the topics of the fluidity and contestability of gender and sexuality. The point of departure for the conference is the assumption that gender-related processes take place in context (spatio-temporal, social, cultural and political etc.) and need to be investigated as such.

Material Religion in Modern Britain and her Worlds

This two-day symposium will explore material cultures of religious belief and faith in modern Britain. As Birgit Meyer, David Morgan, Crispin Paine and S. Brent Plate have recently pointed out, studying material objects provides us with an alternative evidence base in the study of modern religious belief (Birgit Meyer et al; 2011). Yet few attempts have yet been made to do so. While many scholars now concede that Britain's religious landscape is more varied and rich than the narrative of secularisation allows, a tendency remains in the historiography of religion to privilege written sources over material manifestations of religion. This means that all sorts of belief practices have been overlooked.
