Kit Heyam is a PhD candidate in the School of English at the University of Leeds. His research interests surround the textual expression and negotiation of anxiety surrounding sexual transgression, particularly (though not exclusively) love and sex between men. His PhD thesis is entitled “Literary and historical representations of Edward II and his favourites, c.1305-1700” and focuses on contextualising references to Edward II’s sexual behaviour within a scholarly understanding of the history of sex. Outside of academia Kit is also the outreach co-ordinator for York LGBT History Month, who will be bringing the Second National Festival of LGBT History to Yorkshire in February 2016.
