Outside/rs Conference

Our conference theme:  Solidarity With/In the Community

We are currently in a period of greater divides and contestation within our society, especially when it comes to those who exist in queer, marginal or dissident relations to normativity in its various guises.

This feeling of division and the fight for solidarity both inside and outside our communities is a common experience for queer, trans or LGBTQIA+ people, as well as BIPOC communities, disabled and neurodiverse people, working class and colonised populations, and others still.

Outside/rs 2023 is a postgraduate and community conference, scheduled for June 9th – 11th 2023 and hosted at the University of Sussex. The conference will be a three-day, in-person event, though delegates will have the option of also attending online. Saturday 10th June 2023 will focus on the community.

If you are a PhD researcher, or if you work, create or volunteer in the LGBTQIA+ community (including in intersection with other communities or issues), we would love to hear from you! Outside/rs 2023 is a space to challenge the distance between the academy and the community, to make connections, and to learn from each other.
