Researching the Rainbow Conference 2019 – Call for Papers

The University of Kent’s (UK) LGBT+ Staff Network is pleased to open the call for papers for the third annual Researching the Rainbow Conference on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 February 2019 on the Canterbury campus.

The conference, which takes part during LGBT History Month, is to showcase the vast array of excellent research being done on or related to LGBT+ people and issues, and to encourage multi-disciplinary collaboration and networking. The conference will also be raising much-needed funds for LGBT charity and History Month founder, Schools Out.
Previous topics have included gay and lesbian representation in the media, transgender issues within mental health care and parenting law, British colonial laws on sodomy, homosexual WWII clandestine operatives, and queer exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art.

Papers are welcome from academics at any stage of their career, students or professionals. Research posters from any discipline are also welcomed for display.
If you would like to do a talk (15 or 30 minutes) or display a poster, please email the title and abstract (no more than 200 words) and a short bio (no more than 70 words) to by Tuesday 15 January 2019.

The conference is free and open to all.
