This two-day conference, hosted by Macquarie University’s Centre for Cultural History, will explore histories of sex and sexuality in Australia and New Zealand. The conference aims to provide a forum for discussion of the range of discourses which have shaped sexual identities and practices in Australia and New Zealand and the linguistic and cultural frameworks within which individuals have articulated their sexuality. Recent histories of sexuality have increasingly considered the impact of space and the material environment on sexuality and the conference will reflect on the significance of this trend in the historiography of the region. The conference will provide an exciting opportunity for colleagues to debate new developments in the field and it is hoped that selected conference papers will form the basis of an edited collection on current research in Australian and New Zealand histories of sexuality.
Guest Speakers: Stephen Garton, Alison Laurie and Barbara Baird
