Event Details

CONFERENCE - Politeness and Prurience: situating transgressive sexualities in the long eighteenth century 

A major, two-day, international, and multidisciplinary conference hosted by the History of Art Department (Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh) which focuses on the cultural history of sexuality, particularly as embedded in polite culture in Britain in the long eighteenth century. 

Featuring major scholars in the history of sexuality, eighteenth-century culture, and gender studies, this conference will present illicit sexuality as having a crucial, yet understated, presence in polite culture. Drawing across visual, material and literary cultures, we hope to provide a multi-faceted and challenging platform for thinking about the role of sexualities in aspects of history in which they have often seemed absent. 

The conference will include keynote addresses from Professor George Haggerty (University of California Riverside) and Dr. Caroline Gonda (University of Cambridge), as well as an associated public lecture from Dr. Faramerz Dabhoiwala.
