Registration at Rewley House Reception
Welcome and introduction
Elizabeth Rahman, University of Oxford
Transforming identities: how colonialism, globalisation and migration shape our sexualities
Siobhán McGuirk, University of London
Siobhán will consider how legacies of colonialism and globalisation shape the way sexuality and gender are experienced around the world. This talk will focus on the experiences of people who have fled persecution seeking protection in the United States, where expectations for LGBT asylum seekers do not always match their experience.
Grappling with gender and health
Jack Lopez, University of Bradford
Jack will explore what happens when an individual’s gender or sexuality diverges from the expected categories of UK health services, and the inequalities that ensue, particularly in the cases of trans+, intersex and gender diverse individuals. Jack considers the use of terminology to ask questions about just how necessary (or not) it can be to target health practices by gender.
Under heavy manners: the adaptation and integration of the post-Windrush generation in Britain
Kenny Monrose, University of Cambridge
Kenny will shed light on the lives of the now middle-aged, second-generation Black Britons, commonly referred to as the post-Windrush generation. Kenny highlights the social forces – including class, race and gender – that have shaped the experiences of growing up black in Britain in reference to the difficult legacy of race relations in the UK.
Refugee masculinities, race and intersectional vulnerabilities on the margins of Europe
Marco Palillo, University of Bradford
Marco will focus on how masculinity intersects with other social categories, such as race and migration status in Sicily, with particular reference to male Sub-Saharan African international protection holders and seekers during the so-called Mediterranean migration ‘crisis’ in 2016-2017.
