Dangerous Influences: Radclyffe Hall in the Archive
Mon, November 21, 2016, 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM GMT
What influences shape our sexuality? Can literature be a ‘dangerous’ influence? In 1928, Radclyffe Hall’s lesbian novel The Well of Loneliness was banned as ‘obscene’ and described as a ‘danger’ to youth. This event will feature a short play written by playwright Natalie McGrath that draws on Dr Jana Funke's (University of Exeter) research on this writer. Join us for an interactive event that will offer a unique opportunity to explore and debate topical questions about sexuality, literary history, identity and community.
